Abstract

Discusses the management aspects of the successful use of high‐rise accommodation in the United Kingdom, with particular reference to the large number of multi‐storey flats in Birmingham. Considers the case of the conversion of Manton House to very sheltered accommodation, examining the project aims, building works, funding, management, allocations, heating, and rent and charges. Concludes that the project has shown high‐rise housing to be an ideal secure environment and a valuable component of the community care policy.
