Maximising value: A strategy to deliver Extra Care Housing in North Yorkshire

This Housing LIN Case study no 57 seeks to understand the strategic approach taken by North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) in structuring their delivery model to continue the development of 1,800 units of Extra Care Housing to be completed by 2020. An ambitious £82.6million development programme to date and arguably one of the largest if not the largest development pipeline to deliver Extra Care Housing in the UK.

The Housing Learning and Improvement Network (LIN) provides and updates on NYCC's strategy and reviews schemes delivered between 2003 and 2011 (see Housing LIN case study No1 (opens new window), 2003) and their strategy to deliver the additional units by 2020 in light of the changing economic environment.
