Limestone View extra care housing scheme, Settle
Limestone View extra care housing scheme is a £6.7million project to be built at Lower Greenfoot in Settle. The proposals for the scheme have been developed through a partnership of North Yorkshire County Council, Craven District Council, Housing 21, Keepmoat and SP&A Architects. Keepmoat which was the parent company of Bramall Construction Ltd and has now adopted the Keepmoat name across all its organisations.
The extra care scheme will provide a new model of housing with care and support. A variety of potential sites for the provision of a new extra care scheme have been considered across Settle over a number of years. However, it became clear that in order to provide a viable and successful scheme, the site of Lower Greenfoot was the best option.
This has meant that the County Council's elderly persons' home at Lower Greenfoot has had to close and will be demolished for the new extra care housing scheme to be developed.
People who did live at Lower Greenfoot have now moved to alternative accommodation, however, they will have the right to return to the new extra care scheme when it opens if it is their wish to do so at the time.
What will the new scheme provide?
For an architects picture of how the new scheme will look see the what will the Limestone View extra care housing scheme look like page.
The new extra care scheme will provide attractive and accessible accommodation in a safe and secure environment. This will allow people to live independently, with appropriate care and support when needed. The scheme will consist of 50 apartments:
The scheme will also contain the following communal facilities open to the wider community:
The scheme will be staffed 24-hours a day, seven days a week so that emergency and unplanned care and support can be provided. It will be able to support people with a range of needs, including people with very high care and support needs, for example those living with dementia, physical disability, mobility impairment, sensory impairment or anxiety.
The scheme will be owned and managed by Housing 21, a specialist social housing landlord with lots of experience of working with older people. Housing 21 has a partner called Dementia Voice and the design of the building has been developed taking into account all current advice on design to support people living with dementia.
