About the Accommodation

The home is currently being designed and developed locally to support the independent living goals of people who have a disability. It’s anticipated that the development will be ready for occupancy in mid-2021.

We’re seeking expressions of interest from prospective tenants who have approved Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA), and who are looking to live in their own unit.

For more information, send us an enquiry and we’ll be in touch as soon as we can.
