See a list of all of the sites we received in response to our ‘Call for Sites’ for the new Local Plan.
We launched the Central Bedfordshire Local Plan in February 2016. The Local Plan is the document that allocates new homes, jobs and infrastructure over the next 20 years. The ‘Call for Sites’, which ran until April 2016, was one of the first steps in the Local Plan process.
The Call for Sites was an opportunity for agents, landowners and developers to submit land which they believe could be developed to meet future demand for homes and jobs. The full list of sites that were put forward is now available to view by parish.
Only an estimated 4-6% of the land that has been submitted will need to be allocated to deliver the new homes that are needed.
We are publishing the full list of sites that have been submitted with accompanying maps, so that everyone has the chance to see the sites that will be considered through the Local Plan process.
Further information is available on our website.
Can you comment?
We will be holding public events over the summer, where you can find out more about the Local Plan. In addition there will be a consultation on the site assessment criteria from 30 June – 29 July. Once approved, the criteria will be used to shortlist the sites.
At this stage, sites have not been considered so the list of sites has been provided for information only. The opportunity to comment on the shortlist of sites will begin in December when we publish the first draft of the Local Plan.
