17. Adapted Properties
The Council has a number of properties including bungalows which were specifically developed for elderly or vulnerable people. EDDC now give’s consideration to applicants, who may not be classified as just elderly persons, but have a verified need for this type of property.
Some properties have been adapted and may contain one or more of the following; level entry shower, wet room, ramps, stair lift, lowered kitchen, ground floor kitchen and bathroom extensions. These homes will be labelled to show that the property has been identified as having adaptations suitable for someone who would benefit from them. Preference will be given to those with a need for that type of accommodation.
