The Assistant Director of Housing & Community Safety presented a report which detailed the outcome of an investment review at Lincoln Court and recommended investment in the site to create an Independent Living with Support Facility.

 

The Executive’s decision on 7 December 2017 to close Windsor House had triggered a property review for Lincoln Court, an independent living (sheltered housing) scheme situated next door.  The review had concluded that the building, if improved, had a sustainable future as Independent Living with Support, in line with the new focus on providing accommodation with care.  It was therefore proposed to invest £1.4m capital in Lincoln Court to create 8 new one-bed dementia friendly apartments, convert 4 existing bedsits into one-bed apartments, and improve communal and office facilities.

 

It was noted that the proposals should be viewed in the context of the overall Older Persons’ Accommodation Programme, which aimed to deliver 861new units of accommodation with care by 2020.

 

Resolved:  (i)      That approval be given to invest at Lincoln Court to create an Independent Living with Support facility.

 

                   (ii)      That a gross capital investment of £1.4m to approved, to deliver new apartments and enhanced communal facilities for Lincoln Court, in order to help meet the need for additional older persons’ accommodation in York.
