Neighbourhood Plan




All residents, businesses, land owners and other consultees who would like to see a copy of the draft Neighbourhood Plan and have the opportunity to comment, please click on the link opposite for all the relevant documentation


Flitton and Greenfield and Pulloxhill Parish Councils are preparing a Neighbourhood Plan covering the whole of both Parish areas. Over the past couple of years, the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group has undertaken initial consultation and gathered background evidence. It has now completed a draft Neighbourhood Plan called The Big FGP Plan.


In accordance with the 2012 Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations (Regulation 14), a formal six-week period of consultation has to be held on the Draft Plan and for us, this will be from Friday 3 May 2019 to Monday 17 June 2019. You are being consulted as part of this process

Following revision to reflect any consultation responses, it is hoped that The Big FGP Plan will be submitted to Central Bedfordshire Council in July 2019 for their approval. After that a Government inspector has to examine it and then if it is agreed, we have to hold a local referendum in the Parishes to approve the Plan, probably before the end of the year. 


It is important that as many people and organisations as possible comment on the draft plan during the consultation period. You can make any comments by e-mail or letter or complete a hard copy or an electronic survey. Please contact your Parish Council or see their websites for more details about how to respond. It is hoped that as many people as possible will use electronic means to read the plan and submit comments in the interests of efficiency and the environment. 

We are also holding drop in sessions where all the documents can be viewed on

  • Saturday 1 June Flitton Church Hall (10.00h – 12.00h)
  • Saturday 8 June Pulloxhill Church Hall (10.00h – 12.00h)
  • Tuesday 4 June Flitton and Greenfield Village Hall (19.00 – 21.00h) 

Flitton and Greenfield Parish Council is managing the process on behalf of both Parish Councils and can be contacted on or by post to

The Church Hall, Brook Lane, Flitton, Bedford, MK45 5EJ. Hard copies can be made available, please contact us for details.

The Steering Group looks forward to hearing from you by the close of the consultation.
