A new complex near Bedford Hospital aims to provide affordable living for the town.

Called the Gatehouse Mews development, it includes 31 properties available for rent and shared ownership - as well as 18 bespoke supported living properties for those with learning difficulties.

Dave Lakin, director of development & commercial at Grand Union, said: “The completion of Gatehouse Mews is a milestone to celebrate. It was not without its challenges – primarily that of the coronavirus pandemic – but we’re very proud of the finished building and can’t wait to welcome our first move-ins.

“Gatehouse Mews offers more than just a place to live, with several properties tailored specifically for those with learning difficulties. Each of these apartments have access to a care team, facilities on site and Life24 – our assistive alarm service.”

Each apartment is equipped with an intercom system, gated car parking, fitted wardrobes and stylish high gloss kitchens – with integrated appliances.
