Bungalows at supported living scheme prove popular

Thirty-five new bungalows at a supported living scheme in West Bromwich have been snapped up by tenants.

The bungalows are part of a £9.6 million scheme on Oxford Road, which includes 58 apartments, and will provide much-needed homes for people with a range of health and social care issues.

The development, which has been built for Sandwell Council by energy services and regeneration specialist ENGIE,  includes four bungalows especially designed for wheelchair users. Councillor Ann Shackleton, cabinet member for social care, said:

“Oxford Road is providing spacious accommodation for people so they can live independent lives with care and support on offer for their personal needs.”

“This is a very important scheme and I was pleased to hear on a recent visit that there already very positive moves to create a real community spirit within the development site.”

Paul Clarke, regional director at ENGIE, added: "The UK's increasing demand for high-quality supported housing is well documented and this development is a great example of how such schemes can be integrated with existing surrounding homes to create an inclusive new community.

"We are delighted to see the residents settling into their new homes and hope they will very much enjoy living there."

The development is expected to be completed later this summer.
