Community Led Housing Fund - Capacity Grant

Following the closure of the Abbey Care Home in Staveley by Cumbria County Council in late 2019. Work has been progressed by Staveley Community trust to create a proposal, which has been submitted to Cumbria County Council (site owners) with the aim of securing a Community Asset Transfer. Part of the vision is to support people better in their own homes, as well as to create a small development of independent living apartments.

Whilst the final decision regarding any transfer is awaited, SCT have applied for a capacity grant from the Community Led Housing Fund. If the transfer takes place and the Grant approved, it would permit SCT to engage consultancy support to co-ordinate other professional services to deliver a planning application.
