Castle Point & Rochford Adult Community College Trade Supplier Essex
Ambitious regeneration plans to transform an empty council building into 74 homes have been given the go ahead. The building in Rocheway, which has been vacant ever since the college relocated in , is set to be demolished to make way for 60 independent living homes for older people, and 14 houses for the open market. The county now has planning permission to build properties and has applications pending for another 79 homes, while 22 other sites are being tested to see if they are suitable for development. Independent living housing enables older people, who may otherwise be living in residential care or a home of their own that no longer meets their needs, to continue living independently in their community.
