Honeypot Lane, Brent

About:

This extra care housing scheme will provide 61 independent flats for older people, as well as associated staff facilities and communal areas. It forms a significant part of Brent Council's programme to deliver new choices for older people with higher care and support needs.

Flats are larger than required by the London Plan in order to incorporate HAPPI design principles, such additional storage space, direct access between the bedroom and bathroom and a flexible layout. This flexibility, along with built-in provision for healthcare technology, will allow residents to stay in their homes for longer, even if mobility or health declines. All flats will have a private balcony or terrace and seating and planters on the open access galleries will create opportunities for socialising with neighbours, fostering a real sense of community. The rear landscaped courtyard will also offer an oasis of calm for residents.
