Funding will see the creation of 39 new properties in Park Royal
Almost £2milllion has been pumped into the borough to build new homes for older and disabled residents in Brent, it has been announced today.
The £1,930,500 cash injection from the Mayor of London’s Care and Supported Housing Fund will see 39 homes built in Park Royal by Leicester Housing Association Limited.
Delivered in partnership with the Department of Health, a total of 669 purpose-built affordable homes on 35 supported housing developments will be delivered across London.
Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, said: “It is essential that we increase the supply of purpose built, quality homes for older and disabled Londoners if they are to have a real choice in how and where they live.

“These affordable homes will help hundreds of Londoners in Brent to remain in their own communities and, with a greater demand for quality and design, raise the benchmark for how this type of specialised housing is delivered in the future.”
All the homes provide a comfortable living space with very few or no stairs, cupboards at reachable height for wheelchair users, adapted bathrooms and handrails.
