Designed around four semi-private and secure courtyards, the new housing responds to the residents’ concerns about security and was developed in consultation with the local crime prevention officer applying the principles of Secured by Design. The dwellings have been designed to Lifetime Homes standards with 10% wheelchair-access provision.
