A man living in a fully accessible bungalow has called for more homes to be built to the same standards.

Mike Meacock, who’s living with terminal cancer, moved into his home in Dunholme near Lincoln earlier this month.

The property is owned and managed by Longhurst Group, a Harry’s Pledge member, and Mr Meacock has lent his voice to the calls for more accessible homes to be built.

He said: “I think it’s great that more homes like this one are being built as it contributes to making people’s lives much easier and happier.

“I definitely think even more accessible homes should be built. With the world the way it is at the moment and with more people living with illness and disability, we should be doing as much as we can to help even more people.

“I suffer with terminal cancer, so living here just makes my life easier.

“The room sizes are perfect and when moving in, it’s so much easier to get stuff through the doorways.

“It’s a beautiful place and it just makes everything easier for me and I’m so grateful for this opportunity.”

The homes were bought by Longhurst Group as section 106 properties on a Cyden Homes development and were further enhanced to increase accessibility.
