Representation Summary:

PARAGRAPHS 4.12 and 4.13

Paragraph 4.12 advises that the Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity (BRCC) Housing Needs Survey Report (2018) indicates a particular demand for smaller 1-2-bedroom homes and bungalows in Gamlingay to meet the needs of single people requiring accommodation on their own, as well as older people seeking to downsize. Paragraph 4.13 recommends developers focus on less expensive, smaller, and adaptable 2 to 3- bedroom houses and bungalows. Cambridgeshire County Council supports the provision of smaller homes which could be explored as part of a mixed-use scheme at the former First School site.
