A development that will see a derelict site in Wolverhampton transformed into an inspiring short breaks facility for disabled children and young people has been granted planning permission. We have secured planning permission on behalf of Progress Care Solutions to build the new £1.5m residential development.
The service, based at the site of a former petrol station in Stourbridge Road, Springhill, will offer a place for disabled children and young people to enjoy quality time away from home, while giving their families respite from care giving.
Commissioned by Wolverhampton City Council, the children’s short breaks service includes six bedrooms, a state-of the-art sensory technology room and a quiet room, as well as a lounge, dining room and kitchen.
The three-storey building also features a short breaks facility for 18-25 year olds to the first floor and five supported living apartments on the second floor for young adults with additional support needs, to enable them to live as independently as possible.
