Replacement care home for the Gables approved

Gables 1

The existing Gables home

 

Our Policy and Resources Committee approved a two-year project for the replacement of The Gables care home in Forfar which provides services to adults with learning disabilities. The old care home is considered as outdated and not suitable for the needs of residents and will be replaced with new properties which will provide more personalized models of housing support to meet the needs of its residents and families. Caledonia Housing Association was appointed as the preferred Registered Social Landlord for the project.

The proposed project will provide:

  • 11 one-bedroom flats
  • 1 two-bedroom house
  • Communal lounge
  • Staff accommodation.

Additionally, 6 new affordable homes will be built on the existing site.

For more information see our news website.
