Peace Memorial Bungalows - South Newton

Something you may not know about South Newton – it has 2 Almshouses.

 

These 2 bedroomed bungalows were built in 1949 and are managed by the Salisbury City Almshouse and Welfare Charities with 5 voluntary Trustees drawn from South Newton residents.

 

Almshouse residents make a contribution towards the cost of maintenance and are responsible for utility bills and council tax. The weekly maintenance contribution is eligible for Housing Benefit, thus ensuring that no one need be financially embarrassed on becoming an almshouse resident.

 

The criteria for occupation are:

  •  

  • Have been born in or a resident of South Newton for at least 10 years.

  • Be of good character with a low income

 

Currently, both Almshouses are occupied.  When a vacancy occurs it will be initially advertised on this website and in the Parish Magazine.  Should there be no response then further advertisements will be placed in Valley News and the Salisbury Journal.  Exceptionally, if no South Newton resident applies or is deemed suitable, then applicants from a wider area may be considered.
