Bedfordshire Police has appointed a Rural Matters Liaison Officer.

PC Tau Chamboko, who joined the force in 2002, will spend the next six months getting to grips with the issues faced by Bedfordshire’s rural and farming community.

He will work in partnership with local authorities and other departments across the force to find solutions to issues causing concern to rural communities.

Assistant Chief Constable Mike Colbourne commented: “Bedfordshire is a diverse county, a large proportion of which is rural. It’s important that we deliver a high quality service across all the communities we serve, and I hope Tau’s appointment will demonstrate to our rural communities that we are committed to tackling the issues that matter to them.

“Crime will not be tolerated in any area of the county, and the force remains committed to protecting people, fighting crime and keeping Bedfordshire safe.”

Tau has already met with National Farmers’ Union leaders and key rural interest groups, who have pledged their support.

During his 14 years with Bedfordshire Police, Tau has spent time on patrol in Luton and in the Safer Neighbourhood Team. Most recently he was a staff officer for the Deputy Chief Constable.

He said: “I am enjoying my new role, and am keen to meet as many people as possible. It’s a brand new role for me and I am looking forward to taking on the challenge.”

To contact Tau, please email: In an emergency, dial 999. For all other enquiries, dial 101.

Central Bedfordshire Council Call for Sites

See a list of all of the sites we received in response to our ‘Call for Sites’ for the new Local Plan.

We launched the Central Bedfordshire Local Plan in February 2016. The Local Plan is the document that allocates new homes, jobs and infrastructure over the next 20 years. The ‘Call for Sites’, which ran until April 2016, was one of the first steps in the Local Plan process.

The Call for Sites was an opportunity for agents, landowners and developers to submit land which they believe could be developed to meet future demand for homes and jobs. The full list of sites that were put forward is now available to view by parish.

Only an estimated 4-6% of the land that has been submitted will need to be allocated to deliver the new homes that are needed.

We are publishing the full list of sites that have been submitted with accompanying maps, so that everyone has the chance to see the sites that will be considered through the Local Plan process.

Further information is available on our website.

Can you comment?

We will be holding public events over the summer, where you can find out more about the Local Plan. In addition there will be a consultation on the site assessment criteria from 30 June – 29 July. Once approved, the criteria will be used to shortlist the sites.

At this stage, sites have not been considered so the list of sites has been provided for information only. The opportunity to comment on the shortlist of sites will begin in December when we publish the first draft of the Local Plan.
