The Ground has officially been broken on a site in Scunthorpe being built by T.G. Sowerby Developments for North Lincolnshire Homes which will deliver Eight 1-Bedroom Apartments.
The development, due to be completed by December, is the first in the region, which has received funding from the HCA's Care and Support Specialist Housing Fund, to start on site.
The scheme will see eight 1-bedroom apartments delivered, which are designed to allow older people and disabled adults to live as independently as possible. The apartments have an open-plan designed, allowing ease of movement around them. They each come with their own parking space and are all dual-aspect, giving access to a garden area and allowing plenty of light to come through the building.
The homes are being built to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 Standard and are designed to be highly energy efficient.
Martin Phillips, Development Manager at NLH said: “We want people to be able to live as independent lives as they wish & specially designed homes like these will be allow people to do just that. Working with our partners at the HCA and the Council we are able to create new affordable homes to fulfil an ever growing need for specialist housing. We’ve been able to incorporate lots of special features in the design of the homes, so we can provide the best possible properties for people who would otherwise struggle to live an independent life.”
Helen Fielding, Area Manager from the Homes and Communities Agency added: “The Care and Support Specialised Housing Fund has been established for exactly this kind of high quality scheme, and we are really pleased to see our programme in the North East, Yorkshire and the Humber getting underway with such a good project.”
