Having undertaken visioning studies in and around Houghton Regis on behalf of the local authority in 2017 and 2018, we were delighted to be appointed by the Town Council in 2022 to prepare an Action Plan for the town centre.
Committed growth will see Houghton’s size and population double by 2032 and the Action Plan provides a framework for the expansion and improvement of town centre activities accordingly.
The study was completed through close association with a Steering Group made up of local stakeholders and involved an in-depth investigation of existing conditions.
The resultant findings have been particularly interesting, not only for informing the Action Plan but also regarding the characteristics of sustainable settlements with a strong sense of place and identity.
Further details of the study and its findings can be found in this article for PBC Today.
