Development Strategy: Last Chance to Have Your Say

Help shape the way our towns, villages and communities develop over the next 20 years. Have Your Say.

Local residents and businesses have one last day to comment on a Development Strategy document before it is submitted to the Secretary of State in May. It will then be passed to an independent Planning Inspector for consideration and could be adopted in February 2014.

The draft Development Strategy, sets out how the Central Bedfordshire Council will deliver 28,700 new homes, 27,000 new jobs and the supporting infrastructure to meet demand across Central Bedfordshire to 2031. It received unanimous support from full Council on 29th November, last year.

Cllr Nigel Young, Executive Member for Sustainable Communities, Strategic Planning and Economic Development urged that the area must move with the times to assure a successful future.

"This is a really exciting time for Central Bedfordshire, with key projects and proposals emerging that will bring major economic benefits and regeneration to the whole area."

The Development Strategy consultation ends on Monday 18th February. Copies of relevant documents have been available at council customer service centres and libraries since 7th January.
