Work has started at Emlyn Gardens.
Cllr Lisa Homan, H&F Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, commented: “We are committed to increasing the supply of affordable homes in our borough. Due to the scarcity of suitable sites and the high price of land we continue to develop council-owned sites, like Emlyn Gardens, whenever and wherever possible.”
Eight one-bed properties have been reserved for residents with learning disabilities, three of which are wheelchair accessible.
The flats will allow people with learning difficulties to live independently. Yarrow Housing will manage the new homes and staff will be on site to provide support if needed.
“There is a shortage of housing for people with learning disabilities in our borough,” Cllr Homan added.
“And because of this many are forced to move out of H&F away from their friends, family and support network. This simply isn't fair and we are determined to build more genuinely affordable homes for all our residents.”
