Building work has started on a new specialist supported housing development in Buxton, which has been commissioned for adults with learning and physical disabilities to provide homes which allow them to live as independently as possible.
Dale Valley View, on Dale Road, is a £2.3million development consisting of 15 apartments which are the result of a partnership between Inclusion Housing CIC and Lifeways Community Care. HB Villages is responsible for the delivery of the development in partnership with contractor, Casey Group.
Mayor George Wharmby officially opened the ceremony on Wednesday (5th October), with an insightful speech into the positive impact the development will have on the local population. The Mayor was also joined by the MP for Buxton, Andrew Bingham, as well as other local and county council members and partners of the scheme.
Alastair Sheehan, Development Director of HB Villages, commented:
“Dale Valley View is the first development of its kind in the area and will provide a safe environment for vulnerable adults to call home. It is fantastic to see building work start, and the whole of the HB Villages team looks forward to following its progress and meeting the tenants once completed.”
Jemima Taylor, Group Development Director of Lifeways, adds:
“Lifeways is committed to providing innovative homes for adults with learning and physical disabilities. Dale Valley View delivers on all fronts, from the overall design of the scheme through to the finishing touches in each apartment, and will provide the highest quality of adapted accommodation. Tenants will be able to live independently as possible in their own home but with the added support of carers being on site should they require extra support.”
Paul Atkins from Inclusion Housing, says:
“Dale Valley View is another fine example of specialist supported housing that works for the individuals who require extra support to be able to live independently. Inclusion Housing is proud to be part of the scheme, and we’re looking forward to working with Lifeways and the local authorities to make this development into a resounding success.”
