Enhancing Central Bedfordshire

Enhancing Central Bedfordshire

We are always striving to find ways to enhance the local quality of life and prosperity of our communities through supporting the delivery of quality new homes, jobs, roads and other infrastructure, services and opportunities. We also aim to enhance our town centres and to ensure people feel safe in their communities.

We do all this with the character of Central Bedfordshire at the heart of our thinking. We believe that our area is a great place and we will continue to work to make it even better.
