Closure of Isard House

Care for older people in the borough is undergoing major changes as more people seek to stay in their own homes for longer, including in ‘extra care’ housing, and the standard of remaining care homes is raised significantly. As part of this process, Isard House has now closed, all residents having been moved to alternative accommodation.  The Council’s Property Department will ensure the site is made secure, pending a decision on its future.

The Council’s intention is to place Isard House on the open market and, at that stage, to indicate a preference either for a new care home or extra-care housing. Much will depend, of course, on someone making an appropriate bid and that, in turn, will depend upon the availability of funding.

We are keeping nearby residents informed as matters progress.
