12 one bedroom flats proposed for Parkside 'Dog & Duck'

A fresh application for a "proposed development of 12 x 1 bedroom flats arranged in 3 blocks of 2 storeys with parking and all ancillary works" goes before Houghton Regis Town Council tomorrow evening (Monday) evening for local councillors to make their comments.

The applicant's site is at The Dog And Duck, Parkside Drive, which is currently undergoing major refurbishment of the commercial premises downstairs, and 1 large upstairs flat is being converted to three smaller flats.

The 12 new flats would be built on the present car parking area. 21 parking spaces for visitors to the commercial premises would be provided on land at the northern side. Local people have long regarded the northern side as public amenity land, but it does in fact form part of the applicants site. On the southern edge of the applicant's site is a car park owned by the Town Council which is heavily used at weekends by visiting football teams.

The application can be viewed online at  http://www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/portal/searchresult.asp?appnumber=CB/14/03488
