The 38-unit complex represents a further partnership between the Council and the Department of Health and Social Care.


Unveiling a plaque marking the occasion His Worship said it was encouraging to see a new building development in Pulrose and wished the tenants well in their new homes. Housing and Property Chairman Councillor David Ashford added that Hazel Court was ‘a marvellous project’ that was what sheltered housing in the 21st century should be – a complex that reflected residents’ needs. It was, he said, ‘the way forward in independent living’.
