The Wrestlers, Bedfordshire
Situated at the rear of The Wrestlers public house, this was a site that we sourced for Rowan Homes. Originally a standalone site comprising a mixture of affordable and private sale units, a change to planning consent was obtained, with the affordable provision moved to a nearby site on Cambridge Road, also built by Taylor French for Settle Housing Group. This meant that The Wrestlers became a standalone private sale site with the profits used to cross-subsidise the affordable homes built at Cambridge Road. As part of the development, surplus land was gifted to the parish council as a nature reserve.
The scheme was shortlisted as a regional finalist in the 2018 LABC building excellence awards.
Client: Rowan Homes / Settle Housing Group
