Extra Care Housing Development Framework

The Framework Agreement sets out the procedures, terms and conditions and obligations of a member of the framework in relation to the development and management of Extra Care Housing and Supported Living.
The Council's Extra Care and Supported Living Strategy 2016 - 2025 identifies its commitment towards developing this type of accommodation as a means to support people to remain independent in their own home. This Framework aims to support the Strategy and commission Extra Care housing and Supported Living developments in Cumbria.

The Framework will be used to call for, or develop sites in areas the Council has identified as key areas based on levels of need. Through this framework the Council will open development opportunities in the form of 'mini competitions,' offering members of the framework the opportunity to bid to develop and manage Extra Care housing/Supported Living Accommodation in areas of need as identified by the Council.
