WORK STARTS ON OUR NEW £4M SUPPORTED LIVING SCHEME IN CAMBRIDGESHIRE

Work has officially kicked off at the site of a former agricultural garage in Chatteris to bring new homes for disabled adults in Cambridgeshire.

Fifteen new apartments and three bungalows are being built at the site on Huntingdon Road which will be adapted for people with learning and/or physical disabilities.

The £4m scheme, called Barber Gardens after two young brothers from the town who perished in World War 1, is expected to be completed in summer 2020.

It is being delivered by specialist supported living developer HBV who collaborated with Chatteris Town Council, Fenland District Council and Cambridgeshire County Council to get the scheme started.

Mayor of Chatteris, Councillor Bill Haggata and Roger Thompson of Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority officially  started work at the site in a special ground-breaking ceremony which included parents of prospective residents.

Councillor Haggata, said:

“I am delighted to start the work here and I am encouraged that HBV have selected Chatteris, the gateway to Fenland, where we actively encourage business and residential developments, to build this much required facility in the heart of our community.

“We need to ensure that the most vulnerable in our society are well cared for and looked after in suitable accommodation. This development will put a lot of smiles on a lot of people’s faces when it is completed next year. I’m looking forward to visiting the site when it is completed and meeting the new residents.”

Roger Thompson, director of housing and development at Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, said:

“This development is a perfect example of collaboration between the private and public sector and is a tangible demonstration of real teamwork. Barber Gardens is set to be a fantastic example of what can be achieved through innovative partnership, working not only between statutory, not for profit and private sectors, but importantly between the NHS and Adult Social Care Teams.  We’re proud to support this scheme and the best bit is yet to come; welcoming the residents into their new home.”

Alastair Sheehan, Business Development Director at HBV, said:

“We have had tremendous support from the planning team at Fenland District Council and the adult social care officers at Cambridgeshire County Council.  Along with positive guidance from local ward councillors in Chatteris and engaging with the local community we are delighted that everyone recognises the need for specialist supported living accommodation for some of the local community’s most vulnerable people.”

He said: “It’s important to me to make sure that the most vulnerable in our society are cared for in the West Midlands. One of the key issues I want to address as Mayor is to not only see existing housing stock improved and upgraded but new developments like this built on appropriate brownfield sites like this.

“This is a really good example of what can be done using the specialist supported living model which is a fantastic approach to dealing with the shortage of quality accommodation for vulnerable adults.”

He added: “By living in their own apartment, rather than living with parents or in sheltered accommodation, vulnerable adults will gain more independence and dignity to live their lives in a supportive community.

“I would be keen to see more specialist supported living schemes developed in this way at the right sites.”

“Both Warwickshire County Council and Warwick District Council have been fully supportive of the development, having understood from the start what it will mean to local individuals with learning and physical disabilities.  We are extremely grateful for their collaborative support and approach to the delivery of a complicated site, not without its political challenges.

“Bath Place will be one of the first developments in the County to provide homes which will allow vulnerable individuals the ability to live as independently as possible, not only in terms of the 24-hour support on a site located in a highly sustainable location, but one that will also have a comprehensive and bespoke assistive technology offering. It is with the greatest pleasure that we are able to see building work start, and we all look forward to following its progress and to meeting the tenants and their families once the build is completed.”

“The development at Leamington Spa is another example of what can be delivered through innovative partnership working. Inclusion Housing is proud to be a part of the strong working partnership with HB Villages, Lifeways and the Local Authority that has brought the project to this point.
