The local community took to their keyboards and forms to vote on a short list of names for a new, landmark independent living scheme in the heart of Houghton Regis.

And All Saints View was the winner, with 41% of votes, for the building which will house 168 independent living apartments for over 55’s, alongside a public restaurant, bar and café, shops and health and beauty treatment rooms.

Nearly 400 people voted on the short list that included All Saints View, Houghton Lea, Houghton Regis Central, Houghton View and Kings View.

Councillor Carole Hegley, Executive Member for Adults, Social Care, Housing Operations and Customer Services, said: “Once again, the residents of Houghton Regis have been hugely supportive of this independent living scheme. Right from the outset, they’ve been involved in the planning and design stages, and the process of naming the building has been no different. All Saints View was a local suggestion that local people voted for, but there were so many fabulous suggestions that we plan to use some of the original 168 names within the building, working with the community to decide what goes where.”

“In time, we hope All Saints View can be a fantastic community resource, as well as providing the sort of space, community and care that over 55s are asking for. Residents will have the freedom to be independent, as well as access to care and support if or when they need it.”

The short list was announced at a ground-breaking event earlier this month, with the contractor Galliford Try Partnerships.

Councillor Eugene Ghent, Executive Member for Assets and Housing Delivery, added: “This is a significant investment in Houghton Regis and it’s great that the key site, right in the heart of the town, now has a name that reflects the community. All Saints View is a major part of our plans to provide a choice of quality options for our older residents.”

Initial works have started and the building will be constructed in two phases. Central Bedfordshire council have set up a new Facebook page, where they will post periodic updates about the ongoing works. New signage will go up in the coming weeks to showcase the building.

In collaboration with community representatives, five names were shortlisted from 168 suggestions and were announced at the ground-breaking event.
