Homes for rehabilitation and shelter Q & A DCP Section 11.4

This section includes residential homes for the care, shelter and rehabilitation in the community of groups such as the recovering mentally handicapped, ex-alcoholics, ex-addicts, vagrants, discharged prisoners, battered wives and unmarried mothers. The essential difference between these uses and residential and nursing homes for the elderly (see 11.3), apart from the age of residents, is that the period of occupancy of any one individual is likely to be relatively short term, but in some cases the potentiality for amenity harm will be greater. Accommodation for the homeless is dealt with at (11.5) and children's homes are considered separately at (11.6).
