Work has started on our new Stourport specialist supported living development.
The £3 million development in Mitton Street will consist of 15 apartments and are designed for adults with a range of learning and physical disabilities.
Stourport Mayor Ken Henderson, Mayoress Lin Henderson and Councillor David Little, deputy chairman of Wyre Forest District Council attended a ceremony to signal the start of the work.
Councillor Henderson told visitors that a development of this type can have a real impact for people living with disabilities.
The project is a partnership between HB Villages, Inclusion Housing CIC and Lifeways Community Care.
Alastair Sheehan, Development and Planning Director of HB Villages, said:
“Mitton Street will provide the opportunity for local adults with disabilities to have their own home, but with the added benefit of on-site support staff.
“We’re excited 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, added: “Lifeways is committed to providing innovative homes for adults with learning and physical disabilities.
“Mitton Street delivers on all fronts, from the overall design of the scheme through to the finishing touches in each apartment and bungalow, this development will provide the highest quality of adapted accommodation.”
And Paul Atkins, Property Director at Inclusion Housing, said: “Mitton Street is a great example of what we are able to achieve through an innovative partnership.
“Inclusion Housing continue to be proud of working alongside HB Villages, Lifeways and the local authority who have gotten the project this far.
“We look forward to welcoming new tenants in due course and will continue to work closely with the partnership to deliver high quality homes for the most vulnerable members of society.”
