A supported living development in Fletcher Way, Hemel Hempstead for adults aged between 18 and 45 with physical and learning disabilities has been officially opened.
Designed by The Tooley & Foster Partnership for Hightown Housing Association, the scheme provides eight self-contained flats in two modern blocks .One of the blocks also includes an office and overnight staff accommodation. Each one-bedroom flat is fully wheelchair accessible and has its own fitted kitchen with adjustable height work surfaces and sink, an en-suite bathroom with wet room and an open plan living room.
TFP’s design had to allow for a car park that was easily accessible to residents from both blocks and had to take into account a number of trees with preservation orders.
Councillor Colette Wyatt-Lowe, Hertfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Adult Care and Health, declared the scheme officially open at an event also attended by Councillor Frances Button, Chairman of Hertfordshire County Council, Hightown Chairman Tony Keen and Hightown Chief Executive David Bogle.
