Aldwyck Housing Group has announced the completion of its first extra care development – Greenfields, in Leighton Buzzard.

Residents will soon be moving into the state-of-the-art building, consisting of 82 units, a mix of rented and shared ownership apartments.

The development includes a restaurant, café, hair and beauty salon, wellbeing suites, gardens, treatment rooms and a community room that will be available to hire.

Greenfields is located at the crossroad junction of Billington Road and Theed Way, and was specifically chosen due to its close proximity to Leighton Buzzard town centre.

Simone Marsberg, Business Development Manager at Aldwyck Housing Group, said: “ The project team have worked very hard and we are extremely proud of Greenfields. I’m excited to welcome the residents into their new homes and the community into the fantastic facilities Greenfields will provide.”

The completion of the development paves the way for the closure of the Sandhills Community House.

When the house’s lease expired in April, Central Beds Council extended it until August so it aligned with the opening of Greenfields.

Cllr Andrew Turner, Executive Member for Stronger Communities, said last December: “With the availability of Astral Park, Pages Park pavilion, Greenleas School, the narrow gauge railway new station and the Greenfields complex, we are confident that all of the organised activities currently provided through the community house can be successfully relocated elsewhere in the vicinity.”
