Open house at Melling sheltered housing

Lancaster City Council is holding an open day at Melling House Sheltered Housing Scheme for people to have a good look round before applying for a place.

A number of flats are currently available to let in this scheme on Hala Road, Lancaster and the event will will provide the opportunity for people to see the facilities, have a look around some of the flats available and meet the scheme manager.

Staff from the council’s Health and Housing Service will be on hand to answer any questions, help fill out application forms and show people round.  Family and friends are welcome to come along, and refreshments will be provided.

The city council provides retirement housing throughout the district, which offers an excellent standard of rented accommodation and a range of properties depending upon individual needs and requirements.

Sheltered or retirement housing is a popular choice for many people, normally of retirement age, including people who live outside the district and want to be nearer to their family or friends.  It combines an independent lifestyle with security and round the clock emergency support.

• The open day at Melling House will take place on Monday 9th May from 11.00am to 2.00pm. 

• Anyone who is interested in sheltered and retirement accommodation but unable to come along to the open day can find out more by contacting Lancaster City Council’s Needs Assessment Section on 01524 582929.
