CBC continues to monitor and adjust the forecast for school places required as a result of housing development in the north of Houghton Regis. Central Bedfordshire is on the verge of significant growth over the next 15 -20 years as illustrated in the draft Local Plan. The plan has been updated following consultation and further consultation has since taken place, with the plan proposing up to 20,000 new homes as well as the creation of approximately 24,000 jobs.

CBC's School Organisation Plan is already forecasting significant pupil growth over the next five years, so they are developing a more strategic, long term plan to map out how best to meet this growth in terms of school expansions, new school requirements or any other changes, to align the educational provision with the growth identified in the Local Plan. This is their Schools for the Future project and it includes on-going dialogue with all schools and academies to seek to coordinate how w to meet this growth to ensure the best possible educational outcomes for children.
