Bedford residents: have your say on new council ward boundaries

We are asking local people and organisations for their help to draw up new ward boundaries across Bedford.


We are reopening this consultation for six weeks, as a portion of the original warding consultation took place during ‘lockdown’.

The Commission has also announced that it is minded to recommend that the council should have 46 councillors in the future.

We are now drawing up a new pattern of wards to accommodate 46 councillors. We need your help to tell us where the new boundaries should be drawn.

Below, you can see the current ward boundaries for Bedford Borough Council.

You can submit comments to us or upload a document on this page. Scroll down to see your options.

There is plenty of information to help you make a submission in the 'Related links' section at the right of the page.

This stage of the consultation closes on 04 May 2020.
