Investment is Patchy

The Local Plan, which determines where new housing and economic development sites will be located up to 2032, is one of the most important strategies for which Bedford Borough Council is responsible.

It is therefore deeply worrying that nowhere in the consultation document does it clearly spell out the investment in infrastructure needed to accommodate between 13,000 and 16,000 extra homes.

The council's track record of getting developers to fund investment like roads, schools, and GP surgeries is patchy to say the least. Without a proper infrastructure plan, the borough will simply become even more congested, lowering living standards for existing residents and hobbling our children's economic prospects.
