Residents of the Jubilee Court Independent Living accommodation in Pinxton have received the welcoming news we are investing £2.85million into their care and well-being.
We are upgrading and improving the facilities at the complex including changing the bedsits to one-bed flats complete with wet rooms, to make it easier for residents to bathe.
The accommodation on Kirkstead Road is currently home to 20 residents and the money will see the communal heating system replaced, wet rooms installed, a new sprinkler system and fire safety measures upgraded.
The residents lounge will also undergo a makeover to make it more modern as part of its Safe and Warm Scheme.
It is also proposed that two bungalows are built expanding the type of accommodation available for residents and adding to the Council’s housing stock.
Work is due to start in early 2023 and the cash will help modernise and improve the living accommodation for the residents, something which Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor Sandra Peake is fully behind.
“We have always said we need to look after our elderly and vulnerable tenants and this investment shows once again that we are putting our money where our mouth is.
“As a responsible landlord, it’s important that our tenants know we are looking after them and have their best interests at heart. The refurbishment will provide the residents with their own flat and control of their heating and a much more comfortable and welcoming environment to socialise with each other, their family and friends.”
Over the past few years we have ploughed over £7 million pounds into refurbishing Ashbourne Court in Shirebrook, Parkfields in Clowne and Valley View in Hillstown with the promise of more to come for Woburn House in Blackwell.
