Residents in support of proposed Homeless Supported Accommodation at Brook Lane, Chester

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


A recent petition has been launched “Residents against Homeless Shelter at Brook Lane, Chester” to oppose CWaC’s proposal to convert an empty property (26-27 & 28 Brook Lane) into a 24h staffed home for people in Chester requiring accommodation. 

The properties, which have been empty for more than two years, would be staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by a total of nine workers on a shift pattern.

In its planning application, Cheshire West and Chester Council states: "The property will provide move-on accommodation for homeless clients who would move from emergency accommodation or hotels into this property. This scheme will help residents become tenancy-ready for their own property in 6-12 months time. The properties will be staffed 24/7 by the council’s commissioned homeless support provider, ForFutures.”

We are facing unprecedented times, action MUST be taken to support people who are homeless, and to prevent more people facing the same crisis. 

Please sign to show your support.
