Investing in accommodation options for older people in Flitwick

Central Bedfordshire Council - Email alerts

We are starting to share our early plans for the former leisure centre site on Steppingley Road in Flitwick. 

Our plan is to provide a variety of accommodation options for older people. We have an increasing older population in Central Bedfordshire and want the best possible quality of life for them; supporting them to live as independently as possible for as long as possible.

The plans are for a mix of: a residential care home, an independent living scheme with community space - also known as ‘extra care housing’, and downsizer dwellings for older people. 

Not only will it transform a derelict site in Flitwick, it would provide a choice of better accommodation, delivering better living standards and a better quality of life for older people. 

We will be holding two public drop-in information events to answer questions about our plans.

The events will be held on:

  • Monday, 21 January: from 4:30pm to 7:30pm at the new Flitwick Leisure Centre
  • Wednesday, 23 January: from 2:30pm to 5:30pm at Flitwick Library

An outline planning application has been submitted on the Planning Portal and will be considered at the council’s Development Management Committee in due course.
