Mawneys Close and Mowbrays Close Garage sites development
We are proposing to turn these two garage sites into supported housing schemes, to create much needed homes and support for some of our most vulnerable residents in our community, and to deliver duties placed on the council for those leaving care.

In 2017, Mowbrays Close was originally earmarked for redevelopment of four, two-storey semi-detached houses to replace the disused garages.
The Council received planning permission P1508.16 to help ease the general demand for Council homes for local people.
However, when the Council reviewed the demand for supported housing in the borough, they proposed instead to turn these two sites into supported housing, to help address some of the acute need in the borough and create much needed homes to support those who need the support of the community most.
The project involves replacing the two garage sites with studio flats, office space, car parking and other amenities.
This is to help support young adults with disabilities or those leaving care who require support to become independent.
They will have varying levels of needs, keeping them close to existing support networks and avoiding out of borough placements.
An experienced social care provider will be commissioned to ensure that support is available 24 hours a day.
This will provide the additional security and peace of mind necessary for those in our care and for nearby residents.
