Reasons for the Decision


In May 2017, the Executive had approved the demolition and rebuild of De Wint Court, with a view to delivering a flagship extra care housing scheme to meet the growing needs of older people.  The redevelopment would be modern and fit for purpose, user friendly and compliant with current housing design standards, and would increase the provision from 37 to 70 units, thus representing an increase of 33 units.  The development enabled the investment of £3.22 million by Homes England and of £2.8 million by Lincolnshire County Council.


The report set out the fees and charges to be implemented from 31 January 2022 for intensive management support; utilities (electricity, water and heating); and the guest room.
