Local Plan Update from Barton Parish Council

Monday evening (29/01/2018) the Planning Committee met to discuss the “CBC Local Plan” and consider what action the Parish Council should take.

Due to the unreasonably short consultation period, Barton Parish Council decided to appoint the expertise of an independent Planning Consultant to carry out work to prepare an objection, based on planning grounds, to the ”CBC Local Plan” in order to respond to CBC by the 22nd February deadline. This consultant was briefed on the task Tuesday morning (30/01/2018).

Central Bedfordshire Council has not consulted the Parish Council on specific land sites and the Parish Council did not submit any sites to be included in the “CBC Local Plan”.

Once the draft response is prepared it will be shared with residents.
