New £3m Tipton development for disabled adults
Developers will soon start work in Tipton on bringing an innovative new housing development for disabled adults to life.
The development of 18 apartments and two bungalows on Shrubbery Avenue has been specially designed for people with physical and learning disabilities.
It is one of a number of schemes being delivered in the West Midlands by HBV, the specialist supported living developers. HBV is working with Sandwell Council and aims to have residents living in the development by mid 2019.
Alastair Sheehan, development and planning director of HBV, said: "We are pleased to have acquired this site in Tipton and we are looking forward to playing a role in helping people with learning or physical disabilities to gain more independence and dignity in their daily lives.
“Our development provides the opportunity for local adults with disabilities to have their own home, living as independently as possible but with the added benefit of 24-hour on-site support staff. When blended at the outset with our assistive technology offering, outcomes for tenants are greatly enhanced.
“This development will become a real asset for the community and we thank all those politicians and council officers who have helped us get this far.”
HBV is a leading national developer of supported living schemes and operates in a joint venture with Morgan Sindall Investments.
It is committed to pioneering the development of independent living and delivering suitable accommodation for vulnerable adults currently living in inappropriate, badly serviced and often, poor quality accommodation.
