1. That Cabinet approve in principle the site set out in Part 2 of this report to include supported independent living provision subject to further work to confirm the feasibility of developing the accommodation on the site, and if appropriate a further Cabinet decision to seek approval of the business case for allocation of financial resources in Surrey County Council’s (SCC) capital programme.
2. That Cabinet support the inclusion of Supported Independent Living units at future community hubs if appropriate a further Cabinet decision to seek approval of the business case for allocation of financial resources in SCC’s capital programme.
Reasons for Decisions:
The one site set out in this paper would deliver circa 12 units of supported independent living accommodation.
The site falls within areas of need identified for the provision of supported independent living units.
The one site is close to local amenities and public transport as set out in the site criteria requirement. This will ensure that residents can retain the independence and staff can easily access the site.
In addition to managing increased demand, the Supported Independent Living Programme for people with mental health needs is also an enabler to achieving efficiencies within Adult Social Care’s Medium-Term Financial Strategy (MTFS), which are reliant on the availability of appropriate accommodation for existing clients.
Through identifying further opportunities in the development of community hubs we will be able create additional supported independent living capacity that will lead to improved outcomes for residents.
