We want best possible quality of life for all our residents and are committed to developing and improving accommodation with care and support for older people.
We began development of Independent Living Schemes offering the independence, privacy and security of self-contained apartments with a range of communal facilities and support services designed to meet the needs of older people.
We have proposed a new policy for allocations that will be adopted by any new Independent Living schemes in Central Bedfordshire.
We undertook a consultation to hear your views on whether the Policy is fair overall and likely to achieve the objectives. The objectives of the Policy are to ensure that homes sold for shared ownership and for rent are allocated in a fair and transparent way, with local people who will benefit most from Independent Living schemes having the highest priority to move in.
