Highways design guides

Bedford Borough Council has its own highway design guides, however these are currently being updated and should be read alongside national guidance contained in 'Manual for Streets' and the 'Design Manual for Roads and Bridges' and other guidance below.

In addition to the design guidance, new developments must adhere to the Council's parking standards. The links to all the relevant design guides are shown below:

For more detailed advice when preparing applications for specific developments please use the pre-application advice service.
