Southern Housing Group’s new extra care development, Green Meadows, has opened in Freshwater.
The innovative £11m scheme was delivered by a partnership including Southern Housing Group, Lovell Later Living, Isle of Wight Council and Funding Affordable Homes Housing Association and a ribbon cutting event and tour was held on 10 November to mark the completion of 75 affordable rent and shared ownership apartments including 45 one-bedroom and 30 two-bedroom flats.
The Green Meadows scheme builds on the existing relationship of all the partners and is supported by Homes England. Appropriate housing for older people and people with care and support needs is in high demand on the Island with the Council highlighting the need for further new extra care homes in the future. The scheme is owned and funded by Funding Affordable Homes Housing Association
