Work has started on new council properties in Katesgrove which will offer supported living to people with learning disabilities.
My fellow Katesgrove ward councillor, Rose Williams, went to the site on Whitley Rise on Thursday to represent the council along with Rachel Eden, lead councillor for adult social care.
This exciting development will provide 10 much needed flats for disabled people, with the properties owned and managed by the council.
The development will add to the impressive facilities on the site which houses the Cedar Court extra care accomodation for older and physically disabled residents.
Rose and I and our fellow ward colleage Sophia James are proud of the work the council is doing in Katesgrove which will help people from across the Reading area.
It was a shame Sophia and I were at work and could see the start of the work but we will be following developments with interest.
