Following a public examination of Central Bedfordshire’s Draft Local Plan this summer, The Planning Inspectorate have now provided formal feedback to the council.

This has been welcomed as an important step forward in the thorough and comprehensive process of creating and agreeing the Local Plan.

Whilst many critical areas of policy have been accepted without commentary, there are a number of areas which require some further work.

It was clear from the examination hearings that we would need to address various issues that were raised, and we’ve already begun work on these.

Although there is much to do, we welcome the feedback and want to assure everyone that we are putting every effort into responding to the points that have been made. 

It is clearly in the interest of our communities that we do so as swiftly as possible so that we can finalise our plan which will serve to protect the community against speculative development and ensure that we can build communities with the supporting jobs, infrastructures and services that make a place a great place to live.

Both the Inspector’s feedback and our response letter can be found on the Local Plan pages on our website at
