Site needed for replacement Almshouse

     

    Community Led Housing – Call for Sites

    Community Led Housing is an umbrella term for homes that are delivered with the support and input from the community, whilst the homes are delivered to meet a specific need within a geographical area. Stansted Parish Council has been working with Uttlesford District Council officers to ascertain how the loss of the olds Fullers Almshouses on Church Road can be re-provided for residents aged 55 years and over.

    The Parish Council is issuing a ‘call for sites’ to deliver up to 8 bungalows that will remain affordable in perpetuity.  The Parish Council is looking to work with willing landowners on a legacy or philanthropic basis of sites within the development boundary.  The homes will be owned and managed by a non-profit housing association.

    For an informal discussion, please contact Ruth Clifford (parishcouncil@stansted.net). The deadline for submissions is Friday 20 September 2019.  All applications will be kept in the strictest confidence.
