Grove View Integrated Health and Care Hub and Grove View Apartments

Timings, next steps and giving your feedback - Grove View Integrated Health and Care Hub and Grove View Apartments

Work is now underway

Work on the new integrated health and care hub and apartments for the over 55s, off Court Drive in Dunstable, started in May 2021 and has made good progress.

Groundworks for the site were completed in September with the steel framework now complete and precast flooring is in place. You can see the progress for yourself in this short timelapse video that runs from May 2021 to November 2021.

Hoardings now encircle the site to protect the site and temporary roads cross through the site to enable the safe delivery and removal of materials. A site compound has been created to house Willmott Dixon’s project team and allow for construction staff welfare and, the storage of key materials. The works are not affecting the use of the skate park in any way.

Site map

The diagram below shows the extent of hoarding and fencing around the development, together with a special graffiti board which will be in place near the skate park, as an initiative to encourage budding local artists with a space for them to add their personal tags. The area will be monitored and we will, of course, remove any offensive content and this will be cleaned on a monthly basis to ensure the content is fresh.

Access to Dog Kennel Walk will be possible from the southwest side of the development, near the car park.
