As part of a Council wide review of Older Persons’ Housing Needs, Brunswick Court, along with a number of other sheltered accommodation sites, has been identified as in need of either substantial improvement, replacing or possible reprovision. While there is a large vacancy rate in bedsit provision, the rest of the area is well used. Council officers have visited the site and are currently undertaking a consultation with each individual tenant to ascertain needs and provision of care. At the time of writing, that consultation is ongoing and no decision has been made as to the outcome. However, an important factor is the lack of other sheltered accommodation in the Cranham/Upminster area which will be a key consideration. We shall keep you updated on this important matter through the Bulletin and this website.
