Work to begin on 30 new homes for residents with mental health needs

Harry Leach 13th Jan, 2020

ALMOST 30 new homes for residents with mental health needs will be built in Redditch town centre this spring.

Housing association Bromford will build 14 single-bedroom flats on Ipsley Street alongside 13 two-bed flats for shared ownership and affordable rent.

It will be Bromford’s thirteenth ‘MyPlace’ development, a scheme which helps adults with mental health to live independently.

MyPlace aims to give those adults a chance to take control of their life.

The site, based between Station Way and Evesham Street, will feature a communal hub designed to give residents a space to make new friends, socialise and get involved in community events.

On site care for the residents, should they need it, will be provided by a specialist company.

The site will also feature an office, car park and landscaped gardens.

MyPlace offers a solution for local authorities which are looking for cost effective ways to ensure vulnerable people get the care and support they need.

Nathan Deen, Bromford’s senior land manager, said: “We are really pleased to complete the land purchase for such a great site which will rejuvenate what is a prominent location in the heart of Redditch.

“It will give people with long-term conditions the perfect platform to take control of their own life and live more independently.”
