Housing Strategy

The council is consulting on its Housing Strategy for 2016 – 2021, which sets out our vision and plans for housing and working in partnership to deliver more for our residents and communities.

It identifies the issues we face as a council around ensuring the delivery of new homes and the challenges for housing services over the next five years in the context of a growing population, new government policies, a fast changing local housing market and a challenging economic climate.

You can have your say on the Strategy by completing the questionnaire on our website. You can also find more information about the Strategy online, as well as instructions on how to complete and return a paper copy. 

Please respond by Friday, 20 May 2016.

AIRPORT NOISE INSULATION SCHEME

In order to aid those households most affected by noise impact from the airport’s operation, LLA (London Luton Airport) provides a Residential Noise Insulation Fund to assist in reducing this.  These may be residences experiencing disturbance due to the frequency of over flights and/or proximity to the airport. 

LLA will contact residents and organisations directly if they are eligible, however if you would like further information please contact: Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Telephone (automated voicemail): 01582 395382

Please note that this is only for enquiries and they are not taking applications; anyone eligible will be contacted directly

22nd April 2016 Update

We have just received the below details & map which indicates that no properties within Kesnworth will be eligible for noise insualtion based on noise contours map attached.

 Each year a panel of Independent Noise  Specialists will determine the  properties that are eligible based on the noise contours.

 The London Luton Airport Consultative  Committee (LLACC) Noise Insulation  Sub-Committee will prioritise the  properties for insulation each year.

London Luton Airport will directly contact the eligible properties selected for Noise Insulation.

Property owners can decline insulation and this must be put in writing to LLA.  These property owners will however be contacted again in 5 years.

If the property owner accepts the insulation, a meeting will be set up to discuss and agree the best insulation for the property with the owner.

Once approved by LLA the work will  commence at a suitable time for the property owner.

Have your say on changes to bus services in Central Bedfordshire

We currently subsidise or partially fund 53% of bus routes in Central Bedfordshire while also covering the cost of 43,000 bus pass holders every time they use their bus pass.

At a time where our funding has been reduced this is seen as being neither sustainable or a fair way to use council tax payers money.

That is why we are looking at developing a fair and transparent process to make decisions about whether or not to fund bus routes that do not have enough passengers to make them financially viable.

Decisions on levels of services provided will take account of commercial bus operations, actual bus usage and alternative provisions.

We are already seeing community transport solutions stepping in to provide services and we want to encourage more of this so we are proposing to facilitate a new process where community bus providers can compete to provide travel, should demand be high enough.

As well as this the we're looking to make changes to concessionary fares such as changing the times when people can use their bus passes in line with  English National concessionary Travel Scheme.

All the changes are set out in detail in the new draft Passenger Transport Strategy.
