Manager's description
“Halton Court is not an ordinary purpose-built housing scheme for older people; this stands out as different. It is distinguished by: award winning quality design; very generous private and communal spaces; the scale and range of facilities; a dense urban setting; located on a prominent site of a major regeneration scheme; prioritised for older people seeking to downsize.

Viridian Housing’s Halton Court is a 170-unit scheme for over 55’s, part of Kidbrooke Village, the regeneration of the now demolished Ferrier Estate in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, London. Halton Court provides part of the affordable housing contribution under the Section 106 Agreement for Kidbrooke Village. At design stage the scheme, designed by PRP architects, won the HAPPI category of the 2010 Housing Design Awards; it will surely be a very strong contender if submitted as a completed scheme in the 2014 Awards.

The scheme challenges the orthodoxy of large extra care housing schemes in that, although this is a large scheme with generous facilities, it is firmly a housing-led scheme rather than driven by social care. There are no requirements for residents to have any care needs to live here, and currently any care needs are met through domiciliary care services.

Lettings are made through the choice-based lettings system of RB Greenwich’s housing department rather than social care referrals from social services. However, the scale of this development will allow both on-site care and operation of the scheme to be developed on a more flexible basis than traditional extra care housing”
