Lowfield Green: learning disabilities accommodation and support
Purpose of Report: The
project proposes to build specialist accommodation for 6 adults
with a learning disability who have dementia and 6 adults who
because of the aging process, are in accommodation which no longer
meets their needs and would suit a more bespoke setting. In
addition to the 12 units there will be up to 6 cluster flats on for
first steps into independent living. The building of these units
will enable a pathway through specialist supported accommodation
for adults with a learning disability. There will be staff on site
24/7. The proposed site for this specialist accommodation is the
Public Service Plot at Lowfield Green.
Executive will be asked to agree for the specialist accommodation to the procurement of a housing provider to build the accommodation and a support provider to deliver the care and support element.
This report has now been deferred until the 20 July 2021 meeting of the Executive to enable additional analysis of proposals to be undertaken across areas of the Council.
This paper has been withdrawn to explore further options in relation to exploring the opportunity for the Extra Care independent living scheme proposed at Lowfield Green together with this project to enable the final plots on the site to be considered in parallel with a view to shortening the time to completion of the projects.
