Demolition Starts on Former Co-op Store #hrcoopbuild


Work has begun to remove the co-op building in Houghton Regis.

Central Bedfordshire Council are in the very early stages of planning for what comes next on their site. The total site covers the store footprint, the car park, the recycling bins, and Red House Court on about 4 hectares. It is thought the scheme may eventually include up to 170 accommodations for extra-care housing, retail units, heritage, and social facilities. 

The Council are currently having 83 accommodations built at Priory View, Church Street, Dunstable, on a 2 hectare site.

Nearby residents are not unduly concerned by the potential of being overlooked by new buildings, but have told HRND that they will look forward to (hopefully) the removal of adjacent sycamore trees and their self-seeding spores. 

More details and information about the scheme is not expected until June 2015.
