Bedford Borough Council

Planning for Growth

Getting Bedford's local plan right is vitally important. It determines the location of new housing, jobs and infrastructure.

The current local plan (Bedford Local Plan 2030) proposes growth in existing towns and villages. We and other stakeholders think this approach is wrong so, we're seeking changes to it to include a new settlement.

Reducing the need to over-develop existing towns and villages by creating properly planned growth for the long-term. Funding new facilities rather than pressurising existing ones.
