Skinners Court and nominations have been sent to AnchorHanover Group from
the Extra Care waiting list.
For Alcazar Court there has been one void property and a nomination has

4. Of the current blocks of flats (referring to question 2), how many of
the blocks are [currently] void/vacant?
Current there is only one Sheltered Housing Scheme which is due to close.

5. How many units are ‘fit for purpose’ (referring to question 1)? i.e.
meet the needs of the group they purport to serve?
Enfield Council's Sheltered Housing service is currently being reviewed
which will look at those schemes which are no longer fit for purpose for
older people. This information is therefore currently not held.
Both the Extra Care Schemes are fit for purpose as they were built as
Extra Care Schemes.
