Money secured for new homes for elderly and disabled by Mayor of London Boris Johnson
The Mayor of London has secured money to build more than a dozen homes for older people and those living with disabilities in the borough.
Boris Johnson will be paying for the project as part of the first phase of his care and supported housing fund which is delivered in partnership with the Department of Health.
Harrow will be receiving £715,000 to build 13 purpose-built affordable homes in a new development in Stanmore as part of a London-wide project.
The £30m fund will pay for 669 purpose-built affordable homes on 35 supported housing developments across the capital.
Mr Johnson hopes the new homes will help the elderly and disabled remain independent and part of their local community.
He said: “It is essential that we increase the supply of purpose-built, quality homes for older and disabled Londoners if they are to have a real choice in how and where they live.
“These affordable homes will help hundreds of Londoners in Harrow remain in their own communities and, with a greater demand for quality and design, raise the benchmark for how this type of specialised housing is delivered in the future.”
