Driffield: Albion House flats project for adults with learning difficulties



Have your say

A social housing organisation is set to open four self contained flats for adults with learning disabilities in Driffield.

Stonham Home Group is working with East Riding of Yorkshire Council to develop a property on Albion Street.

Albion House was previously divided into eight bed sits used to accommodate young people.

Christian Lang, care and support development manager for Stonham, said: “Stonham is Home Group’s car and support business which will manage the accommodation once reopened.

“Jointly, we are working with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council to develop the building.

“The proposal is to refurbish the existing building into four self contained flats for adults with learning disabilities, plus a sleep over room and office space for staff providing care and support.

“The house is currently divided into eight bedsits and was previously used to accommodate young people.”

He added: “Prior to submitting out planning application and then hopefully starting the work, we would like to consult with Driffield town councillors and East Riding councillors together with local residents on our proposals for the development and to give the opportunity to view the plans.

“Home Group put great store in working with local people to produce developments that are in keeping with the local area and tastes.

“Local residents should have the ability to influence the design, and be involved in the process.”

A special consultation event is to be held at Cass Hall, King Street, Driffield, on Monday 24 February from 4pm to 5pm when representatives of the Home Group Development Team, Stonham and East Riding Council will be in attendance to elaborate on the proposals
