Development firm HBV has had its plans for eighteen new apartments for disabled people approved by Fenland District Council.
The development, on Huntingdon Road in Chatteris, will enable local people with learning and physical disabilities to gain more independence by having their own home with their own front door.
The scheme comes with staff accommodation to support the tenants in their daily lives and it is thought that work could begin as soon as the autumn.
Alastair Sheehan, planning and development director at HBV, the specialist supported living developer, which is a joint venture partner with Morgan Sindall Investments Limited (MSIL), is pleased to have been given the green light.
“We are extremely grateful to have received the support of officers and members of Cambridgeshire County Council and Fenland District Council to deliver this scheme.
“I’m confident it will, as on all our schemes across the country, make a positive difference to the outcomes of local disabled people, their families, local businesses and the wider community.”
The development provides tenants with their own personal accommodation to meet their individual preferences, needs and requirements; with care staff available onsite 24/7 to provide support and ensure they can live as independently as possible.
