CBC Submit Plans to Deliver 31,000 New Homes To Meet Local Demand Up to 2031 -


On Friday 24th October 2014, The Council submitted the development plan for Central Bedfordshire and all of its supporting documents to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. The plan sets out plans for delivering 31,000 new homes over the next 20 years and 27,000 jobs to meet local needs up to 2031.

The Council received more than 1600 individual comments to the most recent consultation which ran for eight weeks from 30th June to 26th August.  All of these responses will now be considered by an independent Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State to determine whether the Plan is ‘sound’ and legally compliant.

What Happens Next?

It is expected that the Inspector will hold a Public Examination in spring 2015. Individuals who made objections and sought changes to the document during the formal consultation over the summer and requested to attend the hearings will be invited to attend the hearing sessions to present their argument to the Planning Inspector verbally.

For those who do not wish to attend the hearing sessions, the Planning Inspector will still consider their written comments.  All comments, whether made in writing or verbally at the hearings, will carry the same weight.

Further information will be available on a dedicated examination webpage which will be updated frequently as the examination proceeds. In addition we will be writing to respondents to notify them of the dates of the Examination when they have been set.
