Council Reviews its Planned Housing Building Targets – possibly upwards!

Central Bedfordshire has launched a new consultation reviewing what was thought to have been its development plans till 2030. The accompanying document yet again floats the idea of a ‘totally new settlement’ in Central Bedfordshire despite their involvement in the Wixams and previous heated debates over such a concept locally.

This is a public consultation and MMAG strongly encourages you to get involved and book to attend one of the workshops and/or complete the questionnaire on line
