Neighbourhood plan examinations for Central Bedfordshire

If a neighbourhood plan is successful at examination, it will proceed to a referendum to allow residents to vote. If the plan is successful at referendum, we'll 'make' the plan part of the development plan for the area and use it during the consideration of planning applications.
