£1.3m Tithe Farm Recreation Ground Sports Project

  • Houghton Regis Town Council has been developing a scheme of improvement for Tithe Farm Recreation Ground at a provisional cost of £1,350,000
A report to the Environment and Leisure Committee last week told councillors that so far the project comprises:
  • an all-weather pitch, 
  • new changing rooms and car parking on Tithe Farm recreation ground 

The project is being developed and progressed in partnership with Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) and the Beds Football Association (Beds FA). Funding for the project is likely to come from the Town
Council, CBC and the Football Foundation. The council has appointed a Bid Consultant and a Design Architect to support the project development.

Issues have arisen.  The land needs to be registered with the Land Registry. And across the site, there is an Anglian Water foul sewer. Options are being considered to either design the scheme around the drain or to work with Anglian Water to ensure there is access should it be required.

Provisional funding costs have been worked out, with the majority money coming from the Football Foundation:
