We are pleased to announce our successful appointment by Bedford Borough Council to produce a Strategic Placemaking Framework (SPF) for an area located to the south of Bedford, working in partnership with LDA Design.
Building on our success delivering of the award winning Net Zero Transport Research for the RTPI, this SPF will focus on how planned future development of 7,000 new homes and new employment land in the South of Bedford area can be delivered in a way that is sustainable and aligns with Bedford’s net zero ambitions.
We will provide a multidisciplinary role in the team covering the following themes:
Decarbonisation: Undertaking a comprehensive baseline review of current emissions in the area and developing potential future reduction pathways
Transport, Movement & Mobility: Developing a sustainable transport strategy for the area
Energy: Developing a long-term strategy for low carbon energy covering heating and renewable energy generation
We will also lead production of an Infrastructure Delivery Plan for the area which consolidates infrastructure requirements across all themes.
Our approach will be supported by application of our 15-minute analysis tool, which is embedded within our own Cadence GIS platform. This will allow us to develop an evidence-based approach to locating Mobility Hubs and sustainable transport infrastructure within the area.
