Bedford Borough Local Plan 2030 was adopted by Full Council on 15th January 2020 and they are now preparing the next Local Plan to 2035. The first stage is a ‘Call for Site’ process to encourage landowners and developers with available land to put it forward to the council for consideration. Consultation on Issues and Options will run concurrently.
The Call for Sites will run from Tuesday 14th July to 5pm on Friday 14th July 2020.
The Issues and Options consultation will run from Tuesday 14th July to 5pm on Friday 4th September 2020.
Emma Ralphs, Graduate at Chapman Lily Planning explained that ‘this provides a huge opportunity to improve and enhance Bedford Borough through encouraging development in a highly sustainable location. These consultations will open up areas for future growth and boost the council’s role within the Oxford-Cambridge Arc.’
