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. 

CPRE Bedfordshire is strongly opposed to Covanta gaining an environment permit to incinerate non-hazardous waste at its planned facility at Rookery South, Stewartby.

This year CPRE Bedfordshire celebrates 30 years of standing up for Bedfordshire’s countryside and greenspaces. To mark this, we are running a photography competition open to all, to build a picture of Bedfordshire’s much-loved countryside and greenspaces, and glimpse how these are changing. The theme is: Bedfordshire - A Changing Landscape.

Local campaigners are delighted that Freemen's Common has been withdrawn as a possible site for development in Bedford Borough's Council's draft Local Plan 2035.

CPRE Bedfordshire has asked the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) to “call-in for review” Central Bedfordshire Council’s decision to approve a small but controversial scheme for 9 new houses in Bedford Road, Northill that they and Northill Parish Council believe will have a serious impact on the conservation area of Northill.

A petition calling for a community's right of appeal against unwanted development, is gaining momentum across the country.
