New £6.8 million housing facility for older people opens in Hucknall

New £6.8 million housing facility for older people opens in Hucknall

A new development costing £6.8 million to house older-people in Hucknall has just been completed and residents are settling into their new homes. 

The development is the latest Ashfield District Council affordable housing scheme, which has been created in partnership with Nottinghamshire Council and built by Wilmott Dixon Housing.

The new facility offers 39 spacious one and two-bedroom, modern and accessible homes, for older people at Darlison Court.

Each new home has been designed and built so it is completely self-contained and has full access to the onsite communal facilities such as a shared lounge area overlooking the stream, which runs through the site.  

Nottinghamshire County Council have also made a contribution of £735,000 in order to provid extra care support in 10 of the apartments, this means that the older people in those 10 apartments can live independently in their own home with the support and reassurance that care staff are on-site 24 hours a day. 

Councillor Muriel Weisz, Chair of Nottinghamshire County Council’s Adult Social Care and Health, said: “Darlison Court is our first extra care scheme in Ashfield and we are thrilled it is opening its doors to its new residents.  

“Offering Nottinghamshire older residents a real alternative to traditional residential care with self-contained homes that have their own kitchen, bathroom and living space along with on-site support has been a key priority of the County Council. This new extra care development helps to deliver this aim.”
