These two, single storey, carbon capturing, energy efficient homes are being funded by the Rough Sleepers Accommodation Programme. They will provide comfortable, light homes for young people for up to two years. The homes are relocatable, so can be moved by the Council to another site in the future.
Last year Agile designed, manufactured and delivered a one bed home on a neighbouring site. It is used by Torbay Council to provide a high quality home and support for people in housing need. The design, manufacture and construction of this home generated almost £100,000 in social value – equating to £1 of value for every £1 of cost.
Planning permission for the two new homes is expected in August 2022. A start on site is planned for December 2022. Residents of these two homes will be provided with support to become more independent, reducing the long term impacts and costs of dependency on public services.
