Accommodation - YES are a family run business, part of the O'Shea Partnership based in Maidstone, which operate a number of homes offering both short term placements providing inspirational and positive support towards independent living to adults with mild learning difficulties.

Having obtained planning permission from Maidstone Borough Council for change of use and conversion of an office, to create nine residential units including the addition of single and two storey rear extensions, Lorna O'Shea approached NUE to discuss the possibility of obtaining an interest free loan to help with the conversion costs.

Empty for more than two years, the semi-detached three storey Victorian building situated in a residential area and is close to all amenities and facilities is now in the final stages of completion. 

Always on the look out for new innovative projects NUE said 'yes' having assured the overal project application.

The total cost of the refurbishment is £250,000 with NUE providing an interest free loan of £175,000.

Keeping it in the family, Lorna's daughter Iza O'Shea is the Project Manager overseeing all contracts and works on a daily basis along with her colleague Vicky Pearce. There is already a buzz amongst those prospective tenants who have already visited the project to see the new homes.

Individuals will also benefit from low cost heating and energy bills now and well into the future. A brand new ground source heat pump costing £54,000 has been installed. Solar panels, a fire alarm system and specialist entrance system with CCTV security have also been included in the design to make this property a safe and secure environment for all.
