Bedfordshire Council expected to withdraw draft local plan

Central Bedfordshire Council has been given a second chance to force a judical review of a planning inspector's ruling that its draft local plan does not comply with the Localism Act's duty to cooperate.

The Council originally applied for a Judical review back in March following a letter from inspector Brian Cook advising the local authority to withdraw its draft local plan rather than have it rejected.  Cook stated that the "necessary steps to secure effective policy delivery on cross boundary strategic matters have not been taken in respect of housing".  He also said that the coopration between Central Bedfordshire Coucil and Luton Borough council over housing allocations has "fallen short of the required level".

The council is to meet today, 19th November to discuss a proposal to withdraw its draft local plan and discontinue legal proceedings.
