I had the pleasure of visiting the former Grace Court site on Brighton Road, now Dillon Court, which is currently being redeveloped to bring it up to standards.
Originally the site was a scheme of 28 homes for older persons, built in the 1960’s which was not up to modern day living standards. Following consultation with the residents, surrounding neighbours and interested parties, CCHA took the decision to redevelop the site to create 50 new homes for older persons, 39 of which will be for social rental and 11 for shared ownership.
I met Oliver Graham, a Board Member at CCHA, Tracy Cullen, the Chief Executive of CCHA, Maggie McCann, Development Director at Orbit Homes and Shina Olaleken, Deputy Head of Development at Orbit.
The project is due for completion in February 2018.
