The purpose of this report is to set out the proposed strategic direction for the provision of good quality, sustainable accommodation for Adult Social Care in Portsmouth. These proposals are based on our work to understand the current and future accommodation needs for social care and for residents in the city.


Recommended that the Cabinet Member for Health, Wellbeing & Social Care:

1.    Approves the preferred option (option 4) in relation to the rationalisation of the in-house residential estate.

2.    Agrees that officers commence immediate engagement with residents, families, staff and wider stakeholders (e.g. primary care) on the closure of Edinburgh House in 2019 and Hilsea Lodge in 2020.

3.    Agrees that work continues on the re-purposing the existing Edinburgh House site for the development of a specific dementia extra care facility; acknowledging that any development will be subject to securing sufficient capital funding.
