NEW housing for people with learning disabilities is opening in Heckmondwike.
Two new bungalows - Mill Dale and Crescent Dale - have been purpose-built at Dale Lane.
The bungalows, built by Kirklees Adult Services, both have eight bedrooms.
Each one is split into two units, with four bedrooms in each one.
The bungalows have a main kitchen and two smaller kitchens.
Mill Dale will offer short-stay accommodation and Crescent Dale will cater for long-stay residents.
The two bungalows will be officially opened by Kirklees Council leader Clr Kath Pinnock on February 24.
She said the bungalows were part of the council's drive to provide more care in the community for vulnerable and elderly people.
She said: "This is great for people with learning disabilities and their families.
"Kirklees Council is committed to caring for the most vulnerable people in our community. This is another practical example of that commitment."
Clr Dennis Hullock, the council's cabinet member for older people's services, said people with learning disabilities were consulted during 2004 by architects designing the new accommodation.
He said: "Their comments were incorporated into the site design."
People allocated places at the bungalows are expected to move in in March.
