Dora Matthews House
An innovative joint project between Rooftop Housing Group, Heritage Care and Forest of Dean District Council. The scheme offers 45 one and two bedroom apartments for older people with a care need and is designed to support those with dementia. At the rear of the site 5 two bed chalet bungalows for Adults with Learning Disabilities complement the main use and the residents may take up associated job opportunities.
The landscape design retained trees and vegetation around the boundaries and improved the ecology of the site enhancing it with native and wildlife attracting plants.
