Who can live at Buchanan Green

The homes will be available to anyone aged 60 or over who is on our Council Housing Register. You may also be able to live here if you are in an Older People’s Independent Living with Care scheme.

If you live in a Council home with more bedrooms than you need we may offer you priority to move. If you have a care need, you will also need a care assessment through Adult Social Care.
