Next step for Marston Vale New Villages

The response to the recent consultation to capture views on the Development Brief for Marston Vale New Villages had fantastic levels of engagement and we thank everyone for their participation.

The responses were very detailed. Most comments were not necessarily linked to the detail of the Development Brief itself but did cover a wide range of other issues, questions and reserved matters, some of which will need to be subject to future discussion and consultation. So every single comment, suggestion and query has been recorded and assigned to the relevant stage of decision making in the planning process, and all items relating directly to the Development Brief are now informing the final revisions to that document.

All comments received will help form the Statement of Community Involvement, which will be shared on Central Bedfordshire Council’s website later in the summer. Central Bedfordshire Council will also be meeting with the Marston Vale Stakeholder Group at this point too.

We will also be publishing a summary of the responses on our website and will alert you to this update via the Marston Valley e-newsletter.
