To make comments by email or in writing, you can download a comments form from the Central Bedfordshire Council website.

Copies of the document and comment forms will also be available by contacting the LDF team on 0300 300 8307 or by email to

Paper copies can also be viewed locally at:
Houghton Regis Town Council Offices (Tithe Farm Road / Peel Street)
Houghton Regis (Bedford Square, Council Customer Services Centre)

When commenting on individual sections or policies, the only matters that can be taken into account by the Council are planning related. For example, issues relating to amenity, visual impact, highways, biodiversity and other planning matters. Comments about the intended users cannot be taken into account. Furthermore, the Council has a duty not to accept comments which contain statements which may reasonably be considered to be of a racist nature.

Following this consultation, the Council will consider the comments received and then
produce a document which you will have a further opportunity to make comments on in May 2013.  An Independent Planning Inspector will then assess the plan and the sites in a public examination.  Please refer to the Gypsy and Traveller webpage
( for updates on progress and where you can view any decisions made.

The consultation will close at 5pm Monday 29th October 2012
