Project Status: completed
Pioneer Lodge, the only Independent Living Unit in Northampton, has been refurbished thanks to a $160,000 investment from Royalties for Regions, through the Mid West Investment Plan.
The $350,000 refurbishment involved replacing the original roof to improve safety and energy efficiency and construction of a new communal activities area for residents.
The refurbishment will achieve greater energy efficiency leading to cost savings into the future. This will enable the continued provision of affordable and comfortable accommodation for seniors living in Northampton, as the demand for such facilities is expected to grow with the town's ageing demographic.
