We were originally appointed by Gilders Almshouse Association in 2006 to design a small estate of 18 almshouse bungalows, various schemes were prepared but due to lack of funding Social Housing Agents Colne Housing were asked to take over the development and provide six almshouse bungalows with the remainder of the site being allocated for social housing. We obtained planning permission in February 2007 for a total of 24 units.
