PHASING


The phasing and demolition was carefully planned to enable residents to move to the new building, and subsequent phases to be built


significantly higher density development than previously existed, meaning residents could then be decanted from another scheme, thus freeing that up for redevelopment. In addition, the development could be


phased, enabling the existing Farrow Court residents to stay in their homes while the first new apartments were built.


High quality environment Of the 104 new homes, 33 were built as part of phase one for the original tenants, then 71 as part of phase two. These include 12 learning disability units and seven recuperative care units named ‘Homebridge’, meaning that people can leave hospital and stay in Farrow Court while a care package is arranged or adaptations put in place to enable them to return to their own home. There is also one guest room within Homebridge. Thought has been put into every detail of the rooms, with large light switches, assisted front doors, wheelchair accessibility throughout, and wetroom ensuites with

doors from both the bedroom and hall for quick entry across the apartment. Ovens are set above waist height for ease of access, and both thick and light blinds are installed, providing flexibility and privacy with the light either kept in or out. Balconies are included on every room above ground, with patios on each ground floor apartment. All the apartments are priced for affordable rent at £110.24 a week for a one-bed apartment, and £153.17 for two bed. The homes are of the highest quality for this price range, not just in terms of care standards, but as modern, healthy accommodation. Along with the new homes, a wealth of communal features have been added to the development. These promote social interaction and a sense of belonging, and an avoidance of isolation, to whatever extent residents require. Among the entertainments on offer are movie nights, game nights and trips out.


There is a large communal lounge with a fitted kitchen in the centre of the facility, with a fitted kitchen and doors leading out
