A scheme for up to 150 dwellings on Langford farmland has been approved despite more than 120 objections from residents.
Gladman Developments Limited's Outline Plans comprise a mix of two- to four-bedroom homes and public open spaces off Cambridge Close.
The 18.5-acre site, according to a report to the Development Management Committee of the Central Bedfordshire Council, is located outside the settlement area of Langford.
It consists of two arable land designated for the residential development near the East Coast Main Line in the upcoming CBC Local Plan.
Access is via Cambridge Road and has been moved to a position further to the west to account for traffic speed.
CBC Highways would like to contribute £ 80,000 to a municipal speed-reduction program that would not be directly linked to the completion of the building.
The open space will have a play area, footpath links, meadow meadows, a hedge and new trees.
