There is also a sixth building which houses a Residents’ lounge, laundry area, Court Manager’s office and Court Managers accommodation. 8 new bungalows were built in 2019.

There are good local amenities including newsagents, chemist, supermarket and hairdressers. Also, the bus stop is at the end of the road, with regular buses to the town centre, approximately three miles away.

Our Court Manager Service is an important and integral part of Housing & Care 21’s approach to supporting our residents. It is designed to offer support and security to the court and those residents on court who need it. The service is about promoting and encouraging individuals to maintain their independence in their own home. Our Managers are also responsible for the day to day running of the court including looking after the Health & Safety, property management and resident engagement.

An additional 8 apartments are due for completion in Spring 2019." Show less
