Making Representations: Background documents Executive on 7th December 2017 agreed to close Windsor House older persons’ home. They made that decision in the knowledge that the closure of Windsor House would prompt the need to re-locate the boiler for Lincoln Court Sheltered Housing (which is next door) and address other overdue works at Lincoln Court, triggering an investment review for this building including potential re-modelling to ensure its longer term future supporting independent living for older people in this area The proposals for Lincoln Court should be seen in the context of the overall Older Persons’ Accommodation Programme which was agreed by Executive on 30th July 2015
