Work to develop 15 new supported accommodation homes at the site of the former Caley Court, Stevenston, got underway this week.

The redevelopment of Caley Court will allow the Health and Social Care Partnership to provide supported accommodation to residents in their own homes with a 24-hour, on-site, staff base. Yvonne Baulk, Head of Service (Physical Environment), said: “Our vulnerable residents often need extra support to live in a safe and healthy environment, and we hope that our supported accommodation will enable them to live comfortably and as independently as possible.

“We are proud of the plans that have been drawn up for Caley Court - we hope and expect the new homes to have a significant impact on not only the residents but also their families.”

The site will comprise 12 one-bedroom homes and three two-bedroom homes which will share a communal garden and courtyard.
