Supporting specialized needs

In a joint partnership between North Lincolnshire Council and Ongo, this small creative infill development has already been commended in the regional LABC awards.

A specialized development designed by Ross Davy Associates in accordance with HAPPI guidelines comprise 8 supported apartments designed to assist those with specialized needs to live as much an independent life as possible. The apartments are ddesigned to accommodate a range of needs and allow for a live in carer if needed. This was one of the first projects to start and be completed under the HCA’s new supported housing funding regime.

Project delivery was facilitated by the amalgamation of land owned by Ongo and developer contractor TG Sowerby Developments who also constructed the homes. With a clear socio economic benefit by providing a resource that enabled family ties to be maintained within the Borough, almost all of the supply chain, workers and purchasing was undertaken locally.
