£3m redevelopment of Stevenston’s Caley Court set to begin

Work to develop 15 new supported accommodation homes at the site of the former Caley Court in Stevenston is set to get under way next month.

Clark Contracts has been appointed as the main contractor for the site and North Ayrshire Council is holding a virtual event on July 1 to allow local people and interested parties to raise any questions they may have about the building works with the contractor and obtain information regarding site access arrangements and traffic management proposals.

Those interested in attending can book a time slot between 4pm and 6pm by contacting the Affordable Housing Team on 01294 324031 or emailing developmentandstrategy@north-ayrshire.gov.uk.

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.  The homes are all designed to be accessible and to be easily adapted to meet the residents’ individual needs.

The £3 million redevelopment of Caley Court will be supported by £1m funding from the Scottish Government.
