The Heritage Society are working in the background on this project. With the aid of Councillor Susan Goodchild asking the Portfolio Holder, District Councillor Eugine Ghent for an update at the Central Bedfordshire Council meeting on the 17th of January. A Responce has come forward. "CBC are committed to renovating the Red House and have no plans to demolish it. As people will no doubt understand, renovating the Red House is a challenge, since we need to find a workable solution that is conservation appropriate, whilst still making sure it has structural support. We know that it is an important part of the history and culture of Houghton Regis and so we are continuing to work hard with conservation officers and structural engineers to find a suitable solution to preserve it".
At the moment, we expect to have an outline solution by the end of January - and one that preserves the building's heritage, historic character and fesatures."
