Arlington House Camden

Volume 461: debated on Friday 15 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many bed spaces Arlington House in Camden had (a) before and (b) after its modernisation under the hostels capital improvement programme; and what alternative arrangements were made for individuals displaced from Arlington House. (136529)

Before its redevelopment Arlington House provided 399 beds. Following the hostels capital improvement programme (HCIP) investment this number has been reduced to 130. This has been agreed with the local authority in order to create more non-accommodation space where training, other support activities can take place, and to move homeless people out of long-term large institutional provision.

Novas who own and run Arlington House worked in close partnership with the Camden council to ensure that every client was resettled appropriately.
