Treow House - Two Storey Building For People With Learning Disabilities

Treow House: new development
A new development at Treow House, Parkside Drive, opposite The Chequers is for a 7 bedroom care facility in the form of a 2 storey building, for people with learning difficulties with 24 hour staff support.

A number of Grade II listed buildings are situated close to site, including the oldest standing building of Dene Hollow (HER 5700), a Grade II listed timber-framed building likely to be 16th century, immediately to the north of Treow House. Slightly further to the NNW is the 18th century Easthill Farmhouse (HER 5702) The 17th-century Vane Cottage(HER 5701) is less than 100m to the SSE on Park Road North.

Documents show that objections were received from Houghton Regis Town Council and Dene Hollow, principally because the building lies within the town's conservation area. The planning application CB/15/04422/FULL was approved by Central Bedfordshire Council in June of 2016.
