Case Study - Filey Fields
Filey Fields was identified as part of North Yorkshire County Council’s “Care & support where I live” strategy to expand the Extra Care programme in the local area.
- Development Type: Extra Care
- Local Authority Partner: Scarborough Borough Council and North Yorkshire County Council
- Developer/Contractor: Tolent Construction
- Architect: SP&A Architects
- Start on Site: October 2019
- Practical Completion: July 2021
The scheme was developed in partnership with two councils, North Yorkshire County Council and Scarborough Borough Council to deliver welcoming, modern, high-quality accommodation to enable residents to live as independently as possible. Six of the apartments were designed as fully open-plan, offering a flexible living option for people with complex needs.
Filey Field’s vibrant café/bistro, hair salon and range of social activities have been well-received by all, creating a new sense of community to combat social isolation to those living both at the scheme and in the local area.
“The development of Extra Care in the county is a strategic priority for the council…this scheme is a real asset for Filey and the surrounding area.”
County Councillor Michael Harrison, Executive Member for Adult Services and Health Integration at North Yorkshire County Council
