Homes people can afford

We all have the right to a home we can afford to live in, wherever we are.

We want everyone in the countryside to have a fair chance in life, whatever their circumstances. To make this a reality, we need to ensure there are enough low cost homes to rent or buy in our villages and market towns.

We’re working with local partners and urging the government to make sure communities get the homes they need to thrive.

In our responses to both Bedford Borough Council and Central Bedfordshire Council’s latest Local Plans CPRE Bedfordshire supported their objectives that a minimum of 30% affordable homes should be included in new housing developments.
