An extension to a sheltered housing and extra care scheme in York has been approved.

In addition to creating 27 additional self-contained dwellings, the new development will allow on-site care staff to provide 24 hour care to people with more intensive care and support needs.

P+HS Associate Ben Hellawell commented ’ we are delighted that our proposals have been so well supported and look forward to continuing to work closely with our client York City Council as well as the wider development team at Bridges Pound and Morgan Tucker to deliver a successful scheme which is due for completion in Spring 2017.’
