Langford Neighbourhood Plan

Langford Neighbourhood Plan

Final stage ……

Much work has been done since you replied to the Langford Neighbourhood Plan Questionnaires in 2018. You will be pleased to know that the plan is now in its final stage leading to adoption.

It is a real pleasure to be able to tell you all that the Plan has now passed all of its formal review and examination hurdles! 

The next and final step is for you, the village electorate, to be asked to decide the future usage of the Plan in a vote, arranged by CBC, to be held on:

September 23rd 2021

at St. Andrews Church Hall

In-person voting will be from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

You will be informed of the vote by CBC, with everybody on the Electoral Roll eligible to vote.  Postal votes will be issued to those who are eligible.

The voting paper will ask you:

Do you want Central Bedfordshire Council to use the neighbourhood plan for Langford to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?

A successful referendum and the subsequent adoption of the plan will mean that any would-be developers will have to take account of the Plan and its Policies, as will CBC in their consideration of Langford planning applications.

To briefly recap, the Plan contains a comprehensive overview of the village and detailed Policies for the future of the village, covering the Environment, Infrastructure, Transport and Movement & Planning and Development.  It is based upon the results of the Village Questionnaire, which had an excellent response and many hundreds of hours work by volunteer residents on the Steering Group.
