New policy will speed up delivery of new homes for the elderly and disabled

Specialist developers of supported living and extra care housing schemes say Tuesday’s (31 October 2017) announcement (full policy document here) gives investors a massive confidence boost and say that hunger for more land to build new schemes is now at its highest level for more than two years. Prime Minister Theresa May has now finally confirmed the housing benefits cap would not apply to people living in extra care housing or supported living.

HBV, a leading developer, headquartered in Greater Manchester, has delivered more than 550 supported living apartments with a further 340 under construction and several hundred more progressing in the planning stage.

The company works with registered providers, investors, care partners and local authorities all over the country to fulfil a need for modern, technology-enabled new-build living spaces for vulnerable people. 

"This is good news and is warmly welcomed by developers, registered providers and care providers. The decision also provides a major boost to the confidence levels for investors in the marketplace."
Alastair Sheehan, Development Director

Alastair SheehanDevelopment Director of specialist supported living developer HBV, said:

“This is good news and is warmly welcomed by developers, registered providers and care providers.  The decision provides a major boost to the confidence levels for investors in the marketplace and should mean we see more bespoke housing built for people living with disabilities and the elderly, allowing them to live in fit for purpose accommodation.

“As a result of this announcement, we are renewing our efforts to secure new sites for extra care schemes, to complement our supported living pipeline for vulnerable adults across the UK.”
