Independent living in Houghton Regis Central
The preparations to develop Houghton Regis Central, a new independent living scheme for older people, is now underway after plans was approved in November 2016 subject to these conditions (link opens in new window).
Houghton Regis Central will include 168 one and two bedroom apartments for rent, shared ownership and outright purchase. It will also include:
- a reablement suite to support people transitioning back home from hospital
- a hair salon
- a restaurant, bar and café
- retail opportunities
These facilities will be available for residents and the local community to enjoy.
We have committed some £30 million in the scheme which will be built on the old Co-operative site and will include the Grade II listed Red House and the existing Red House Court extra care scheme. All Red House Court residents will be offered an apartment in Houghton Regis Central when it’s completed.
The proposals for Houghton Regis Central are part of a bigger plan to make sure we have the right housing available for our older residents, most of whom want to live in their own homes for as long as possible with access to support and care if they need it.
