Plans to build in excess of 100 houses on agricultural land have been submitted to a council.

A consultation period has opened over a proposal submitted to Central Bedfordshire Council to build up to 110 houses in two agricultural fields east of Station Road in Langford.

The plans, submitted by Cheshire-based company Gladman Developments Ltd, include associate roads, a drive and a public open space.

A meeting was held by Langford Parish Council on Monday to discuss the plans.

Parish councillor Tony Fisher said: “Essentially further discussions with Central Bedfordshire Council need to take place. We understand that they have housing targets to meet, like all councils across the country.

“We want to publicly display the plans in the village so that residents can have their say. There are potentially 300 people coming to the village so there will always be some reservations from residents. The people behind the planning application distributed leaflets detailing the housing proposal to 850 people but so far there have only been 12 responses, with seven people against the proposal.”

The consultation runs until February 21 with more information available at
