Inspired moves for acquisition of Bedfordshire development


Legal & General later living business Inspired Villages has acquired a 12-acre site in Bedfordshire with planning permission for a 200-bed development. The Caddington site (pictured) is expected


to have a gross development value of £120m, creating more than 70 construction jobs per annum over its six-year build period and 32 permanent jobs once complete. The scheme will benefit from a restaurant,


cafe, wellness centre - comprising a swimming pool, fitness studio and gym - library and cinema room. Many of these facilities will be available to


both residents and the local community. Inspired has meanwhile won planning permissions for three developments in Bedfordshire, Kent and North Yorkshire.


The largest is the £60m Turvey scheme in


Bedfordshire, which will deliver 130 homes for over-65s featuring communal facilities for residents and the local community. The facilities include a restaurant, cafe,


library, landscaped grounds and a wellness centre consisting of a fitness studio, gym and jacuzzi pool. In Kent, meanwhile, Inspired Villages will build a second phase at the seven-acre Ledian Gardens scheme in Leeds to provide an additional 50 apartments. Main contractor Kier began construction on phase one of the development earlier this year, which will see 66 apartments and assisted living units, as well as the village centre with communal facilities open next year. Once complete, Ledian Gardens will have 116


age-appropriate homes, as well as a restaurant, cafe, wellness centre - comprising a swimming pool, fitness studio and gym - library and crafts room available to the local community. The gross development value of the


completed Ledian Gardens scheme is £60m, Inspired Villages said. The developer meanwhile has secured


consent to build 154 homes using modular construction at a site in Selby, North Yorkshire.


Oakland Care installs summer houses to facilitate family visits during lockdown


South-east England provider Oakland Care has installed summer houses to facilitate visits during lockdown. The company, which operates a total of


four homes in Sussex and Essex, has deployed the buildings in gardens to allow residents meet loved ones in safety. Clear screens are installed in the summer houses so both parties will be able to see and talk to each other. Residents enter from one side while up to


two family members from the same household are shown into the other side via the garden. Half-hour visits are booked via an online


appointment system and the summer houses are cleaned thoroughly and disinfected between each visit. “We are, so far, free of coronavirus due to the measures we brought in very early on such as closing our doors to visitors,” said Oakland Care chief executive Joanne Balmer. “However, we recognise that residents and


families would dearly love to be able to see each other. We have been keeping people in touch via video calls but it’s not the same as
