Central Bedfordshire Council: We call upon Central Bedfordshire Council to make provision for social club premises in its re-development plans for the Co-op site, Houghton Regis.

We ask Central Bedfordshire Council to recognize the value of a social club to a community in providing a place for social interaction of the residents.
The Houghton Regis Centre, a social club housed in temporary accommodation on the 'Co-op site, Houghton Regis' is being asked to vacate those premises by the end of July 2014, without any alternative accommodation being available. This is so that, under the terms of an arrangement between the parties, the Co-op can hand back the cleared site to the owner of the freehold, Central Bedfordshire Council. The club was a tenant of the Council until the time of the fire in 2006, but the Council has so far refused to indicate whether or not it will make provision for the club in any redevelopment of the site.
