Neighbourhood Plan



Our town is going through some pretty major changes!


A public consultation on Houghton Regis Town Councils draft Neighbourhood Plan commenced on the 9th August and closed on the 24th September 2021.

 Now all the responses and comments have been received, they will have to be collated, processed and responded to. As this is likely to take a number of weeks, things may go quiet for a little while.  Once this stage has been completed, work will start on the document again.

 Once all revisions have been made the Town Council will submit the plan to Central Bedfordshire Council, who then will take over the arrangements moving forward.

 It is hoped that a referendum on the plan might take place in the Spring of 2022 but if timings do not allow then it is likely to be early Summer 2022.

 Updates will be provided as the process moves forward.

 The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group would like to thank everyone who took the time to comment on the draft Neighbourhood Plan they acknowledge the importance of all comments received.

The expansion that happened in the 1960’s changed Houghton Regis from a small village into a town, but a town that was more like a large village. The changes currently proposed will change it into a large town.

In order to cope and prosper, many other things will need to change, and it is only fair and right that the people most affected—those who live and/or work in the town—should have a say in those changes.
