Brampton Valley Homes have re-submitted their application for 17 dwellings at Little Odell. All objections to their previous application will NOT be considered.

If you want your objections to count, you need to re-submit them for application number: 24/00243/MAF.

You can do this by writing to Bedford Borough Planning Services, 4th Floor, Borough Hall, Cauldwell Street, Bedford MK42 9AP

or by email to planning@bedford.gov.uk quoting the Ref: 24/00243/MAF.

To object online, go to www.bedford.gov.uk/searchplans, type in 24/00243/MAF and click ‘Search’ at the bottom of the page. To object, click on ‘Comments’, then ‘Make a Comment’. (You will need to log in first or register if you have not done so before.)

You must start your submission by stating clearly that you object to the planning application.

There were well over 100 objections to the earlier application and numbers do count, but you don’t have to to go into detailed technical reasons for your objection. Little Odell residents would be grateful for your support.

Act Now! Submit your objection today
