Council homes for homeless in Brighton

Stonehurst Court, the site of a former sheltered housing scheme, has been converted by Brighton City Council to provide ten new houses for homeless families.

The two-bedroom council homes will provide temporary accommodation for people while they await a permanent home. The council has also revealed that more council-owned temporary housing is also being considered, with plans to convert a former council housing office into 12 flats, subject to local consultation and planning approval.

Anne Meadows, chair of the Housing and New Homes Committee, said: “These homes will make a real difference to the lives of families who have been made homeless through no fault of their own. With so much pressure on housing in the city, investing in council-owned temporary homes will also help us reduce the amount we spend on renting private accommodation to house people temporarily.”
