The development of ‘Bankhall Court’ was a collaboration between Govanhill Housing Association, The Mungo Found–ation and Glasgow City Council to provide enhanced residential care for people with dementia.

Originally in the ownership of the Council, the small gap site had lain vacant for a number of years until the Association put forward proposals in 2006 to develop it for particular needs housing. Having worked in partnership with The Mungo Foundation on other supported accommodation projects, the client group was quickly identified due to the shortfall of such accommodation in the South East of the city as evidenced by Glasgow City Council Social Work Services.

With the support of the City Council’s Housing Investment Team, the site was acquired in March 2008 and detailed proposals developed for the accommodation which included design information and advice from The Mungo Foundation, as the specialised Care Provider, and Stirling University’s Dementia Services Development Centre.

More information about this new Govanhill housing is very welcome for consideration re inclusion on this page.

The development commenced in March 2009 following receipt of statutory consents and funding approvals with completion achieved in June 2010.

The design has been developed with environmental sustainability in mind and the development has achieved a ‘very good’ BREEAM rating for its energy efficiency.
