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.

Could you be our new Branch Manager?

We are looking for a dynamic, capable and enthusiastic person to run our local environmental charity, raising its profile, supporting its team of dedicated volunteers and promoting its campaigns and activities. You will have strong interpersonal, communication and outreach skills.

Read our response to Bedford Borough Council's draft Local Plan 2035 consultation, which was open for consultation for six weeks between April and June, setting out its proposals for where the new homes it needs will be built. 

CPRE Bedfordshire has learned that over 40% of the 19,000 planned new homes that Bedford Borough Council claims it needs to build in its Local Plan 2035, are for people moving into Bedford Borough from elsewhere in the UK.

Having looked through the documents for Bedford Borough Council's Local Plan 2035 consultation, we've released our early thoughts here.
