Bedford Town Centre South Master Plan Consultation

October 5, 2017 in Uncategorized

Bedford Town Centre South Master Plan Consultation

Under the One Public Estate (OPE) programme Bedford Borough Council is developing a master plan for the Town Centre South area of Bedford. The master plan will help the Borough Council shape the growth of the town including new homes, workspaces and shops.

The OPE programme’s main aim is for the owners of public sector assets to work together to make better use of their combined assets. The master plan will provide options for housing development on sites with one or more public sector owners.

In this process the Borough Council has assessed the capacity and land use mix of development sites to help inform the emerging Bedford Local Plan 2035 and the delivery of brownfield sites within the urban area of Bedford.

The Borough Council is currently consulting on the master plan and would welcome your views.
