Aberdeen homeless development confirmed

 
October 1st 2010
 

A derelict building in Aberdeen will be converted into a 30-bed residency to address the severe lack of homeless accommodation in the city.

The £4.5 million plan for Victoria House on West North Street includes 20 flats and an office for 30 staff who will be on hand day and night to offer support services for tenants working through addictions. The centre aims to provide more accessible and effective support by offering accommodation and assistance under the same roof.

Aberdeen council is currently facing a 2012 deadline to increase the amount of temporary accommodation in the city. In January this year, the council admitted breaching housing laws by failing to provide enough beds for the homeless. People needing somewhere to stay have been housed in hotels and bed and breakfasts, which has put pressure on city officials.

No date has been confirmed for the opening of Victoria House, but we will print it as soon as the information is available.
