Lifestyles - Be Fulfilled

Living and working in Central Bedfordshire is a ‘win-win’ situation. Rent and land values are competitive and, as a partnership, we’re proactive, working with business to enable growth. House prices are also competitive, particularly given the close proximity to London; and with good schools, parks, green spaces and vibrant country towns offering top restaurants, theatres, galleries, retail and sports facilities, it’s a great area to keep your work and home life balanced.


The range of housing in the area includes quaint country cottages, sleek new apartments and striking family homes. We are actively planning to provide 31,000 new homes over the next 15 years, creating new, vibrant, sustainable communities, while also enhancing Central Bedfordshire’s picturesque setting.   

Finding a new home is one thing, ensuring an excellent education for your children is another. Central Bedfordshire has great schools, 85% of which are judged by Ofsted to be 'good' or 'outstanding'.  Even more schools are planned in our development areas.
