Project Description: Tweed Court is a sheltered housing location for the elderly and vulnerable. It is a category two sheltered scheme outside of the city limits in the area of Leigh Park. This is a scheme that provides on-site housing related support to residents, working with Adult Social Care, Health and other agencies. The level of support varies to meet the needs and demands of the residents.
There are 44 properties, comprising 33 bed-sits, 9 one-bedroom flats and 2 two-bedroom flats. This submission relates to alteration & refurbishment works to the entire block of 44 flats.
The works include the reduction in the number of flats to 31 to form more up to date and spacious accommodation by combining flats. These enlarged flats will bring the accommodation up to market expectations, reduce voids and improve long term viability of the location.
