Please note your queue position at the time you made your bid could change. For example, this may depend on the number of applicants showing interest in a property or verification checks completed on applicants during and at the end of the advertising cycle.

Details of new schemes available for rent:
 
New Road Sheltered Housing Scheme

New Road is a sheltered scheme owned and managed by Bromford. The scheme offers a 24 hour pull cord system connected to each property but does not have 24 hour warden control or care on site. Bromford Support provide housing related support within office hours only. Not all of the properties at New Road are suitable to be adapted for mobility issues so mobility will be assessed before applicants are accepted at the scheme. If someone requires care, this can be provided by Social Services or privately but would be something that individuals would need to be able to manage and set up themselves or through family, advocates or carers. Bromford do not provide any care services at New Road. If you are self funder, you will have to pay the rent, service charge and the support related service charge per week per property. If you are entitled to benefits to cover these costs then you will not be charged. All applicants will be assessed by Bromford before anyone is accepted and able to move to the scheme.

 

New regulations came into force on 30 November 2012, which mean that armed forces applicants with particular housing needs must be given additional priority under housing allocation schemes. We are currently revising Solihull's scheme to reflect these changes. If you require any further information at this time, please call our Housing Contact Centre on 0121 717 1515 and ask to speak to a member of the Solihull Home Options Team.
