Extra care housing for Welton gets green light

A new Extra Care housing scheme at Prebend Lane in Welton has received the green light from Lincolnshire County Council’s Executive.

Developed by LACE Housing, the development will feature 62 one-bedroom apartments with 24-hour on-site care and support available. Work is due to start on the scheme in the autumn of 2022.

“Those who take up the tenancies will have the privacy of their own homes, whilst communal spaces will provide an area to meet others and enjoy activities together”, said Councillor Wendy Bowkett, Executive Councillor for Adult Care and Public Health.

“This type of accommodation will be vital going forward with the forecast increase of older aged people and vulnerable adults in the county. It will provide quality housing for people who want to remain in their own homes with the option of on-site care as they grow older.

“It also means we can reinvest in preventative services, stopping people from becoming ill, whilst promoting wellbeing and independence. We’re committed to expanding the housing choices available for the benefit of our older and more vulnerable residents.”

The county council is contributing £1.6m towards the Welton scheme, as part of a £12m investment over the next four years to support the development of Extra Care Housing for older people and Community Supported Living options for adults with a disability.

De Wint Court in Boultham Moor, Lincoln, in partnership with the City of Lincoln Council and supported by Homes England, is a purpose-built complex due to open its doors before Christmas featuring 50 one-bedroom and 20 two-bedroom apartments.

In additions work is due to start next year at The Hoplands site in Sleaford, in partnership with North Kesteven District Council. This will feature 40 Extra

Care apartments for older people, and 12 Community Supported Living units for adults of working age with a disability.
