What is the Design Guide SPD? Policy HQ1 of the adopted Local Plan sets out the requirement for high quality design in Central Bedfordshire. National planning policy places great emphasis on the need to deliver high quality new development and requires Local Authorities to have up to date design guidance in place. The Council has updated the Design Guide to take account of the changes to planning policy, guidance and legislation since the current Design Guide was adopted in 2014. The new Design Guide sets out the key principles and standards of design for all new development in Central Bedfordshire. What is the Housing Policy Technical Guidance SPD? The delivery of the right quantity, quality and type of new housing is fundamental to achieving sustainable communities. The housing policies in the adopted Local Plan set a clear planning framework to support the Council to deliver appropriate housing development within Central Bedfordshire. The Housing Policy Technical Guidance SPD provides further detail to support these policies, setting out how the policies will be applied, what we are expecting from development and how applications will be assessed. The SPD covers the mix of house types required, housing for older people, affordable housing and self build and custom housing.

A Winter Break for Garden Waste Collections

Published: 4 Nov 22

Once again there will be a winter break for all kerbside collections of household garden waste across Central Bedfordshire. The collections will be suspended for 12 weeks from Monday, 5 December 2022 until Friday, 24 February 2023 inclusive. Residents are encouraged to check their last collection date for their area, which will be either the week commencing Monday, 21 November or week commencing Monday, 28 November. The collections will resume on Monday, 27 February 2023 or Monday 6 March. All other waste collections will operate as normal. Over the winter only very low volumes of garden waste are collected, and it is therefore not cost effective to provide the service during these months. During the break, garden waste can still be recycled at the council’s four Household Waste Recycling Centres which are open seven days a week from 9am to 5pm, including bank holidays. For further detail, including the opening times over the Christmas and New Year period, please visit the council’s website: https://www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/tidytips. Residents with enough space in their gardens are encouraged to home compost and can access tips and advice on the council’s website. For more information about changes to your garden waste collection please visit: http://www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/garden-waste. Read More...
