Apartment block hailed as ‘huge success’
‘Cordage View’, which contains 15 one-bedroom flats, is tailored to enable “independent living,” meeting the area’s adult social care needs.
The project is the Council’s first ever residential new build.
The residents, the first of whom moved in this month, are all North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group’s service users who have physical and learning disabilities.
Cordage View features secure fob-entry doors and gates with video calling capability.
All of the flats are wheelchair accessible and feature wet rooms.
They also contain concealed tracking allowing for future installation of hoists.
Councillor Callum Procter said:
“I’m thrilled that this project has been completed and that we now have a greater capacity to offer independent living solutions for many of our vulnerable residents.
“This project has faced many challenges – the site itself was a brownfield site in an area we are keen to regenerate and required flood mitigation and deep piling.
“And like many construction projects of this type, we ran into material difficulties as the COVID pandemic struck, but we persevered.
“That we are now seeing this site open and residents beginning to move in really is testament to the hard work of all those organisations and the people involved. It’s been a huge success.”
The project was funded by the Department of Health who allocated a £650,000 grant.
