Johnnie Johnson Housing launches latest development at Layden Drive in Doncaster

First Published: 20/12/2018

Johnnie Johnson Housing (JJH) has launched its latest exciting development at Layden Drive in Scawsby, Doncaster. Comprising of eight exceptional two bedroom bungalows for independent living for the over 55s, each contemporary home features open plan living areas with stunning rear views. Funded in partnership with JJH, Doncaster Council and Homes England, the team wanted to create a development that would be sensitive to the existing street, ensuring that the design echoed the style and appearance of similar bungalows in the area. The sales site is now live and reservations are being taken.

In keeping with JJH’s ethos of ‘Living Longer, Living Better, the bungalows will support independent living whilst providing new affordable homes for shared ownership, offering percentage shares of 25-75%. Each property will have the optional added benefit of having access to JJH’s 24/7 assistive technology service, Astraline, ensuring help is at hand if ever needed.

The development will also include a bespoke bungalow for rent which has been designed to meet the needs of a household with family members suffering from an acute disability.

Lisa Johnson, Assistant Director of Development and Growth at JJH said “Excellent progress has been made with the construction of eight shared ownership bungalows at Layden Drive. Roofs are on and partition walls installed making them water tight for the cold winter ahead. It is clear that they will provide a fantastic open-plan living environment for people over the age of 55 to enjoy.

Completion is anticipated in March 2019 when we expect to have truly raised the bar in independent living. We are looking forward to collecting keys from our developer partner, Torpoint, in the spring and passing them on to the first lucky purchasers.”
