Poplar Tree Court, Bedford

Poplar Tree Court, Bedford
 

Built on the site of a former registered care home, Poplar Tree Court replaced an outdated building to provide a specialist development of 18 one bedroomed, self-contained supported living apartments, run by MacIntyre Housing Association. Bedford Borough Council, Grand Union Housing Group and Baily Garner collaborated together to work towards the best way of redeveloping the site for current and future needs.

The site was split into two, over half being developed to accommodate a two storey, timber framed building providing18 self contained apartments and supported communal facilities. Baily Garner had the dual role of Employer’s Agent and Architect for this low rise scheme, which enables people with learning disabilities to live within their local community in ‘supported living’ housing, but with the reassurance of 24 hour support staff, plus the benefit of a ‘green and natural’ feel with the retention of many mature trees.
