A church could be converted into six homes.

St Luke’s Church in Fairfield Park, Stotfold was built in 1878 to serve the former hospital.

The building, which has been out of use as a place of worship for more than two decades, does not have its original fixtures any more.

The font, pulpit and altar rail were stolen in 1999.

There were previously plans for the building to be used as an education and research facility but these fell through.

If Central Beds Council approves the submitted planning application it will be converted into two flats with two bedrooms and four with three bedrooms. There would be 14 parking spaces.
