Prospective residents are being invited by Housing 21 to take a look around a new development of much-needed accommodation for older people in the seaside town of Filey.
Filey Fields Court, an Extra Care scheme for people aged over 55, recently opened its show home for viewings of what the complex has to offer. The homes are being built on land at Filey Fields Farm, off Scarborough Road.
The scheme will comprise of 70 high-quality, one and two-bedroom apartments for social rent and shared ownership, in a community setting. Designed to cater for residents’ changing needs, Filey Fields Court offers independent living combined with optional tailored on-site care and support 24/7. Its range of services and facilities includes a restaurant, hair salon and communal lounge which will also be open to members of the local community.
Due to be completed in late spring, the first residents are expected to move into their new homes in September. Filey Fields Court is being developed in partnership with Scarborough Borough Council and North Yorkshire County Council.

Claire Charlton, Head of Extra Care at Housing 21, said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming prospective residents and their families through the doors to see what this fantastic new development has to offer them.
“Filey Fields Court will provide much-needed homes for the local area, enabling older people to live independently within their community for as long as possible.
“Our Extra Care schemes offer the independence, privacy and security of your own home, along with the peace of mind that there is 24/7 support from our on-site care team as needed – all within a welcoming community atmosphere.”
To keep staff and visitors safe, thorough cleaning will be carried out after each viewing. Social distancing will be observed, and protective gloves and face coverings will be available for visitors to use if they wish.
