    supported housing question

    I have received planning permission to change the use of my property to supported housing for people with mental health problems. I would be grateful for any help or guidance as to what i will need to satisy cqc criteria and any other tips on what i will need to do next? I am a RMN and hope to work in this property if it gets established.
    Thanks

    This is a bit specialist for this site - try the local mental health council/NHS trust

      Interesting thread. A quick look on the internet shows that planning isnt required for a 'supported housing scheme' (please see below)

      Can someone confirm this please?

      It also sounds like a supported housing scheme is v similar to a care home for people with learning difficulties or mental health problems. Could someone confirm this also please?



      C3 Dwellinghouses - this class is formed of 3 parts:
      C3(a) covers use by a single person or a family (a couple whether married or not, a person related to one another with members of the family of one of the couple to be treated as members of the family of the other), an employer and certain domestic employees (such as an au pair, nanny, nurse, governess, servant, chauffeur, gardener, secretary and personal assistant), a carer and the person receiving the care and a foster parent and foster child.
      C3(b): up to six people living together as a single household and receiving care e.g. supported housing schemes such as those for people with learning disabilities or mental health problems.
      C3(c) allows for groups of people (up to six) living together as a single household. This allows for those groupings that do not fall within the C4 HMO definition, but which fell within the previous C3 use class, to be provided for i.e. a small religious community may fall into this section as could a homeowner who is living with a lodger.

        Hi all

        I've spoken to the planning department

        You dont need planning to set up a supported housing scheme!

        Also, you dont need planning for change between C3 and C4 use!

          Keep in mind some LPAs (Manchester City Council for example) have Article 4 directions in place to remove the permitted development rights for this- ie in Manchester you will need planning permission to change from C3 to C4.

            by Perfectgame
            Out home is a Leasehold ‘house’ jutting out from a refurbished Grade2* building comprising 55 apartments. Ours is the only one with gas supply to the C19th chimney. We had a gas fire recently installed, but the chimney pot did not comply with the gas fire. According to the freeholder the existing...

            Is this the first gas fire in this spot -- why does it have a gas supply?
            If you plan to make some amendment to your flat why do you feel other lessees should pay the cost?

            In this whole thread I think we need to be careful of words -- "responsibility" versus "rights"...

            I wouldn't argue IIWY. Plenty of freeholders not only charge lessees for doing the job, but bung on hundreds in fees also. Sounds like you have consent to do it yourself, doesn't it?

            What does it say in your lease about walls, roofs and structures outside the confines of your 'house' - that is where the answer lies. Ask the Freeholder to explain why he thinks it is not his responsibility. Usually it is the freeholder's responsibility.

          • Question on Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)
            by Clulass
            I realise its not the best time to consider a development project given that the world is about to shut down and maybe end, but it helps distract me, from our impending doom.

            So to my question:

            Am I right in thinking that there is no CIL payable.....IF.... you are converting...

            CIL payments depend on which local authority you are in. In my area of work and having a Neighbourhood Plan in place 25% of CIL did go to the plan area for use in the community but suddenly our new Unitary Authority banned this so CIL goes into one big pot to be bid for. This does not please me and...

            Hi all

            First time poster here after lurking on these forums for the past week. I've just put an offer on a large 800+ sqft 1 bedroom flat and was hoping to get your input with regards to the Building Regulations. For a moment, I am assuming the landlord / freeholder may refuse consent under...

            I think there may already have been an unsafe modification, in that the kitchen door seems to have been removed. I'd expect that to be a fire door.

            If this is on the 27th floor, I'd say you were definitely creating an unsafe inner room, as the escape root passes through two high risk ...

            Sorry, thought I'd bump this! I'd be very keen to get any input on this.

            Thanks,
