A £1.5m Making Space scheme will see 10 purpose-built supported housing bungalows created in Colne.

The one-bedroom dwellings will be constructed alongside the flagship supported housing scheme Limes Place, which Making Space launched in April this year.

The £1.6 million development was built in partnership with Homelife and Inclusion Housing and was rated ‘good’ in all areas by social care watchdog the CQC this August.

Tenancy will be offered to single people and couples who have assessed care needs, including people with learning disabilities, mental health conditions or physical disabilities as well as older people.

Experienced staff from Limes Place will also be on hand to provide 24-hour background support to tenants of the new bungalows.

The Mayor of Pendle, Cllr Ken Hartley, was invited to break the ground at the development site and was joined by Susanne Horsley, service manager, Limes Place, Paula Spence, performance & quality manager, Making Space and Gemma Shepherd, director of development, Making Space.

The bungalows have an expected completion date of May 2020.
