LOCAL PLAN 2035

Bedford Borough Council is preparing a local plan that will set out how much growth there should be in the borough in coming years (housing, jobs and associated infrastructure) and where it should take place. Current planning policy documents look ahead to 2021 and this new local plan will extend the period that development is planned for beyond that date. It will also contain policies that will be used to make decisions on planning applications. 

 

Local Plan 2035: Plan for Submission consultation

CONSULTATION CLOSED

Consultation on the Local Plan 2035: Plan for Submission has closed. Representations will no longer be accepted. The plan was approved for consultation purposes by the council's Executive on 10th January 2018.

 

The Council's Executive and Full Council will consider the Local Plan 2035 on 16 May 2018. Full Council will decide if the Plan should be submitted to the Government so that a formal examination in public can take place. The Local Development Scheme is being amended to bring it up to date.

 

More information on the timetable can be found in the Local Development Scheme.
