Lot No: 3 Lot title: Older Person Housing

1)Short description

The Older Persons Housing Lot is specifically set up for the construction various models of older persons housing; Our priority, as set out in ‘Newcastle an Age-Friendly City – Older People’s Housing Delivery Plan 2013-2018’ is to secure a broader accommodation offer in the City, including tenure choice. This requires an increase in the provision of retirement housing (leasehold and shared ownership), housing based provision for dementia and general bungalow/apartment developments that meet the requirements of older people in terms of design and location. To provide an alternative to residential care we want to pursue alternative developments such as, Assisted Living schemes with a communal area for residents, and housing support and 24/7 care service. These schemes may also include other options such as bungalows or apartments in smaller sites surrounding the scheme which have access to the housing support and care service. Schemes will be located close to existing services and facilities in the neighbourhood, negating the need to provide additional community facilities such as a café/restaurant. This Lot is being put forward in order to appoint partners to take forward the physical build of the building/s and will be released to the “Partner” for development via mini competitions. Any care and support services provided within the scheme will be appointed separately. Only organisations who are registered with HCA as a registered provider of social housing will be appointed to this Lot. All affordable rented properties delivered through this Lot will be subject to a nominations agreement as determined by the Council.
