Bedford Borough Council's Local Plan is currently open for consultation, setting out its proposals for where the new homes it needs will be built. 

The council is proposing it needs 19,000 new homes until 2035 for its residents, and that these could be built in entirely new settlements, the brownfield site of the former brickworks at Stewartby and by extending existing towns and villages. 

CPRE Bedfordshire is currently studying the proposals in the Local Plan and we will publish our thoughts shortly. We encourage everyone in Bedford Borough to take this opportunity to have a say about how Bedford Borough will grow over the coming years.

More information about Bedford Borough's Local Plan 2035, including maps about where new development sites are proposed, can be found at www.bedford.gov.uk/localplan2035 .  The consultation ends 9th June.
