The use of Woodleaze in Yate as a Young Persons' Housing Scheme.

This consultation is to explore how the former Woodleaze care home in Yate can work as a Young Person’s Housing Scheme.


Subject to planning consent for change of use; South Gloucestershire Council aims to make the housing scheme available to young people in March 2020. In order to meet this deadline, the Council is now seeking local residents' and groups views on how the scheme would work when it is ready, including:

  • How Woodleaze can fill a recognised gap in current provision
  • How the Council can achieve better outcomes for young people
  • Delivering better value for money for the council taxpayer
  • Improving the Local Offer for Care Leavers


This consultation is open from Monday 10th December 2018 until Monday 11th March 2019.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
Target Audience Young people
