Housing Developers confidence in Dunstable as 2 sites currently under construction demonstrate

I recently highlighted that a planning application had been made for a large derelict site in Dunstable highlighting how much more confidence there is with businesses like Amazon and Housing developers investing in the town.

One of our landlords popped into our shop a few days after publishing the article and passed a comment that he didn’t think that the site would be developed. I also had the same response when I published the article on the Dunstable and Houghton Regis Property Group and Network Luton LinkedIn pages.

I know from recent meetings I have attended with local business owners and the Town Mayor that there is now a very positive feeling in Dunstable and I constantly walk around the town and drive around the surrounding area looking for changes taking place.

Here is information about 2 new housing developments currently being built which many people might have missed. They both enforce my opinion that Dunstable is a growing and greatly improving town, attracting investment from businesses, developers and property investors. Many people just haven’t opened their eyes to it yet.

The Ridgeway – Barratt Homes

This development is to be found to the North of Dunstable at the far end of French’s Avenue.

Here is the description from Barratt Homes:

Here you will find a selection of 2 bed apartments and 3 & 4 bedroom Homes currently under construction.

Located at the foothills of the Chilterns. This family-friendly development has plenty of open landscaped green spaces. 30 miles north of London, it’s ideal for commuters with plenty of road connections including a new direct link to the M1 opening in 2017. 2 bedroom apartments will be available later this year.

Kaleidoscope – Linden Homes

I must admit that this was one I could easily have missed. Located behind the new impressive Central Bedfordshire College building on College Drive, this development could easily have been mistaken for part of the same building site.

Here is the description from Linden Homes:

Award winning Linden Homes are delighted to announce that planning permission has been secured for an exciting new development of 109 homes in the Bedfordshire market town of Dunstable. The development will be named Kaleidoscope and will offer a mix of 2 bedroom apartments, 2 bedroom coach houses, 3 and 4 bedroom homes in terraced and semi-detached styles.

Both of these developments prove the faith the house builders have in Dunstable and why I am sure the development currently in for planning I mentioned previously will start next year.

There is a huge demand for 2 bedroom properties in Dunstable and with the availability of such on both these sites there is also the potential for landlords new or experienced looking for their next investment.
