Fully disabled access homes get the green light

A scheme we have been working on to deliver a number of new homes specifically designed and constructed for disabled people has been given planning consent.

The three two-bed dormer bungalows in Waters Upton near Telford will offer fully disabled access and meet the Government criteria for accessible and adaptable homes. There are only a very small number of these properties in existence in the borough.

The new homes will be part of a development of eight and will have living accommodation with a bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor as well as accommodation for other family members or a live in carer on the second floor.

Priority for living in these homes will go to local people and Base Director Carl Huntley said the houses would meet a “clear need” in the area.

“We are very pleased to havebeen able to secure planning permission for our client for this project.

“These homes would be suitable for a vast range of people with additional needs from families with a disabled child, a person requiring a live-in carer, wheelchair users or an older person with mobility issues.

“These properties will address a clear need for additional affordable homes in the rural part of the borough as well as offering a lifeline to people with additional needs who require a home that can be adapted to meet their requirements.”
