Beyond Housing has invested around £75,000 to convert a former office into a wheelchair-accessible flat.

Disused offices on the ground floor of a building on Diamond Street, in the popular seaside town of Saltburn, have been transformed into a wheelchair-accessible two-bedroomed flat, providing much-needed disabled-accessible accommodation.

The works included a complete strip out of the existing offices including demolition of the rear kitchen to form a small yard area with French doors opening out onto it. The flat also includes an open-plan living and dining area and wider access doors. A new, fully cladded wet room, kitchen, boiler and gas central heating system have all been installed.

Tom Hainey, Director of Property and Development at Beyond Housing said: “The work in Saltburn has enabled us to turn unused office space into much-needed wheelchair-accessible accommodation in a very sought after area with an ageing population.

“Beyond Housing prides itself on delivering high quality accommodation for all of our customers. This flat has been refurbished to a high standard and will provide a lovely home.”
