Preferred Developer identified for Exciting Riverside Development.

Monday 4th July

 

Mayor Dave Hodgson has today announced the appointment of Coplan, Denne and PRP as Bedford Borough Council’s preferred development partners for the Riverside North Redevelopment Project.

Coplan was selected after an all-party selection jury met last week and, following their provisional appointment*, the Council will work with them to draw up a development agreement. Extensive public consultation will then follow to ensure that residents will be able to have their say as plans for the development begin to take shape.

The Riverside North Project will be a mixed use retail, leisure and residential project encompassing the area currently occupied by the Town Hall Office Block, the neighbouring Riverside House Building and Horne Lane Car Park. The area has been identified as a key development site for the redevelopment and revitalisation of Bedford Town Centre.

The project aims to help build a stronger local economy, delivering higher levels of sustainable growth and employment for existing and future residents.

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson said; “I am delighted to announce the appointment of Coplan as the preferred developer for this project. The jury received a series of high quality presentations from potential development partners. However, Coplan stood out for their ability to deliver and commitment to working with the public to produce a scheme that attracts people into Bedford and makes the most of the excellent town centre riverside location.

This will be an important regeneration project for our town centre and I look forward to working with Coplan as this exciting development progresses at every stage.”
