Beacon Hill project powering ahead

The construction of three specialist disability accommodation (SDA) houses on the former Beacon Hill church site is progressing extremely well, with tenants set to move in early in 2024.

Growth Corporation board members recently toured the site to view the outstanding progress and were impressed with not only the advanced state of the building works but the generous scale of each house. The first sod was turned on the site as recently as August this year.

When completed, the site will contain two 3-bedroom homes and one 2-bedroom home, with each also providing accommodation for an on-site carer as well as communal living space and attractive landscaping. Each bedroom will also come with an en-suite bathroom.

At the sod-turning event in August, Frenchs Forest Rector Dave Lanham said the parish had spent some time “trying to work through what’s the best use for this land”. Judging by the wonderful facility currently rising from the muddy foundations of the site and the undoubted benefit it will deliver for those in the local community in need of such accommodation, it appears they made a great decision.
