About the consultation: Central Bedfordshire Council wants the best possible quality of life for all its residents and is committed to developing and improving accommodation with care for older people. The Council owns and operates seven care homes which were built several decades ago and which currently no longer meet the expectations of customers and regulators in terms of facilities and accommodation.
So, when better options become available elsewhere, the Council will consult with residents and relatives about the future.
The opening of Dukeminster Court, a brand new care home in Dunstable, and other good quality residential care homes in close proximity to Caddington Hall, mean that the Council can now offer alternative and improved accommodation to the residents of this home.
The Council is therefore consulting on the future of Caddington Hall. Having reviewed a number of options for the future of the home, the Council’s preferred option is to offer and arrange accommodation for the existing residents in good alternative care homes and then to close Caddington Hall. The simplest way to let us have your views is by completing the online questionnaire. Please read the Options Document (PDF 126KB) before completing the questionnaire. For more information about the consultation you can read the ‘Have your say on the Future of Caddington Hall’ (PDF 313KB) fact sheet. The original Executive report which was considered before starting the consultation is also available.
We have created an update (PDF 399KB) for the consultation on Caddington Hall, which includes a list of groups that have been consulted, along with any Frequently Asked Questions as a result of the consultation.
Central Bedfordshire Council want to make sure that our services are meeting the needs of local families and their children. To help us to do this we are asking you to complete this short survey and share your views about your involvement with our social work teams. It will help us to make sure we have done all we can to help you to achieve your goals and to enable us to do things better in the future.
To complete this survey you will need to have the Personal Reference Number (PRN) from the paper survey that you received from Children's Services.
Superfast broadband could be winging its way to most of Central Bedfordshire and you can help by completing a survey to show just how much demand there is for the service.
Superfast broadband would mean people could download music, games and films more quickly, and websites would download faster too. And for businesses the service would boost opportunities to access global marketplaces and allow more companies to offer flexible working to employees. Please read the Joint Local Broadband Plan (PDF 991KB) (the JLBP) for more information.
Please take part in the survey online.
