Anger over planned changes to Little Sutton sheltered housing schemeSmithy Court elderly residents and Labour protest planned cuts12:34, 13 AUG 2014Updated12:51, 13 AUG 2014Elderly sheltered residents of Smithy Court, Little Sutton are angry and dismayed they may lose their residential manager “Many had contracts which stated there would be a resident warden.

This will lead to a drastic change for the residents.”We have started a petition which already has more than 700 signatures to ask both the Tory council and Muir to think again.”The issue was raised at a recent meeting of the full council when Cllr Claydon asked social care and health chief Cllr Brenda Dowding (Con) if she would ‘explain the changes in support funding to sheltered housing schemes’.Cllr Dowding explained an assessment carried out in 2012 ‘showed us that many older people were choosing to remain in their own homes and with the increase in extra care provision many customers were choosing alternative accommodation offers rather than traditional sheltered accommodation schemes’.Due to this,w arrangements for housing related support within sheltered accommodation schemes had been reviewed and 12 months notice had been given to providers that a care and support contract would cease.”We worked with those providers to ensure that there would be no disruption to clients and consequently many of the services provided previously have continued,” said Cllr Dowding.Cllr Claydon pointed out the residential manager at Smithy Court was in residents’ tenancy agreements and asked if she would reverse the measure.Cllr Dowding replied she was not willing to do so and ‘instances of particular difficulties’ should be referred to the council’s officers..
