Work completes on York Council houses aimed at downsizers

Work has completed on eight council properties in York aimed at tenants who are looking to downsize.

The two-bedroom apartments at Fenwick Street off Bishopthorpe Road have been built by contractor ESH Property Services, so that they can be adapted to meet tenants’ changing needs as they age. One has already been modified to meet a new tenant’s requirements.


All will achieve high levels of fuel efficiency through insulation and the highly-efficient heating systems.


Martin Farran, director of adult social care and housing at City of York Council, said: “We have constructed high-quality properties to benefit present and future tenants. Not only can they be altered to meet a tenant’s changing circumstances, but the build has created local jobs and important new assets for the city.”
