At last night’s full council meeting, members voted overwhelmingly to adopt Vision 2050 – setting our sense of our direction and where we want to be in 30 years time.
Leader of the Council, Cllr James Jamieson explained: “The best way to predict the future is to create it.
“So, in February 2019, we along with residents, businesses and local organisations started the development of a shared Vision for Central Bedfordshire 2050 in order clarify the ambitions that the community, stakeholders and sectors have for the area and the people that live and work within it.
“We know that somethings will change, and others will stay the same. The Vision will build on the core strengths that Central Bedfordshire as a place has, what makes it attractive, what can be done to enhance it further.
“During the process of its development we explored how healthy and sustainable communities can be built, in the context of future opportunities and challenges such as technology, climate change, changing demographic and economic trends.”
