Homes and communities for people to thrive and places to flourish


Welcome to the community relations and consultation website for Mill View, a new housing development and country park in Central Bedfordshire. It will be situated at Thickthorn Farm – just north of Houghton Conquest and to the south of the Wixams Park development. It is bordered by the B530/Ampthill Road to the west, and by Bedford Road to the south.

This website is intended as a resource for the local community, providing a way for people to share their views and stay up to date with the latest news as the site develops.

Present Made’s vision for Mill View

We want to deliver a scheme that offers a diverse range of living options for people whatever their stage of life. It will be characterised by high quality architecture, complemented by highly liveable public realm and community facilities.

Underpinning it all will be the latest smart technologies, from energy generation through to resident support tools.

Our plans are for a place that promotes sustainable living, wellness and a sense of community, where residents can live, work, learn and relax all in landscape-led streets that put people before cars. By providing the right infrastructure we believe that we can encourage healthier choices and help people to achieve a more balanced lifestyle and live a more sustainable life.

The planning application has been subject to detailed discussions with Central Bedfordshire Council, and we are now hoping to hear from local residents about our proposals.
