Supported Housing Provision (WL)

Housing services are proposing to remodel and extend an existing council owned care home into supported housing to accommodate homeless households. This is at Theobald House Dartmouth Avenue Bath. The Council has a statuary duty to accommodate certain households when homeless and this proposal is to help meet this duty. The new supported housing will be able to accommodate up to eleven households who will be able to stay locally while they prepare for permanent rehousing. This provision will reduce the need to accommodate people in Bed and Breakfast accommodation which is often outside Bath and North East Somerset.
