People across Bedfordshire have been picking up their cameras and capturing the change in Bedfordshire's landscapes for our photo competition.

CPRE Bedfordshire has learned from a Freedom of Information request that 60% of the planned new homes that Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) claims it needs are for people moving into Central Bedfordshire from elsewhere, rather than local need.

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.

We've released our initial thoughts on Central Bedfordshire Council's draft Local Plan, including comments on housing numbers, Green Belt, infrastucture and environmental impacts.

The summer issue of Bedfordshire Matters is now available to download, and celebrates 30 years of CPRE Bedfordshire.


Central Bedfordshire Council's draft Local Plan, which sets out development in the area for the next 20 years, is now open for consultation.

CBC is proposing that it needs between 20,000-30,000 new homes over this period, in addition to the 23,000 homes that are already allocated or have planning permission.
