Central Bedfordshire Council's draft Local Plan 2035 consultation - our detailed response

Monday, 28 August 2017 11:34

CPRE Bedfordshire has published its full and detailed response to Central Bedfordshire Council’s (CBC) Draft Local Plan 2035 consultation, which can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.

CBC is planning to deliver between 42,600 and 54,960 new homes over the Plan period 2015 – 2035, through the development of new towns, expansion of towns and villages and extensive urban extension onto Green Belt land.

CPRE Bedfordshire fully recognises the need for more housing, but the scale of development being proposed by CBC is completely unjustified, without a credible evidence base and unsustainable.

We also have very serious concerns about the consultation process undertaken by CBC and the large and growing “democratic deficit” in the Central Bedfordshire.

Our full and detailed response can be downloaded below.
