What are community supportive homes?

Community supportive homes are self-contained flats for residents aged 60+ that have communal facilities, offer social activities and have guest rooms for visitors.

The homes may be suitable for residents who want to stay close to friends and family in the area.

The scheme manager at Devonshire House directly opposite will provide a management service from either within Devonshire or from the office in the new development. For safety and security, each flat is linked to a 24-hour emergency alarm.

HAPPI Principles

These new homes will utilise Housing our Ageing Population Panel for Innovation (‘HAPPI’) principles which help architects design homes to meet the individual needs of residents in this type of housing. This will provide residents with a comfortable, pleasant environment to live in. HAPPI homes have plenty of space, light and ventilation.

We are working with our construction partner Osborne who will begin the main construction in Summer 2021. The project is due to be completed in early 2023.

This project is part of the council’s Infills Programme, which turns underutilised spaces throughout Westminster into much needed affordable homes.

Planning Application

The council consulted extensively with the local community and received planning permission in October 2020.
