On Thursday Bedford Borough Council published their updated Draft Local Plan, which takes planning policy to2030. It is not surprisingly a lengthy tome, and short on  humour  Draft Local Plan 2030

Despite the objections of many people earlier this year the two policies that may impact Biddenham are still there; Policy 19 on page 53, and Policy 23 on page 57. This is not great news, but don’t be downhearted. Any objections that have been made will go forward to the Planning Inspectorate for consideration alongside the Borough Draft. The upside is the Borough have changed their views on flood risks: They are now being a lot more cautious, and in the fullness of time this might scupper would be developers’ plans to concrete over too much of Biddenham!
