Ladybarn Supported Living Scheme

By Latest News

At the start of 2018 we are looking forward to seeing some of our 2017 designs moving into the construction phase. One of these is our Ladybarn Supported Living Scheme for Partners Foundation in Rochdale.

Ladybarn is an exciting new venture for Partners Foundation providing 42 new apartments on their 0.5 hectare site in Milnrow, Rochdale. The scheme will provide housing for vulnerable adults aged 21 upwards, a large proportion of which have learning disabilities, amongst other challenges. The apartments themselves are designed to HAPPI 3 and Lifetime Home principles and support an independent living concept.

Developed with Rochdale Borough Council’s Adult Care team, care and support will be provided by Future Directions via their contract with Rochdale Borough Council.

The scheme was submitted in October 2017 and is due to be decided at committee in January. Smith Love Planning Consultants are dealing with this stage of the application and it is hoped that a start on site will be made in the next couple of months.
