Housing association forced to shut homelessness hostel needing refurbishment

A housing association on the south coast has had to close down a homelessness hostel and move residents out of the area after being unable to find funding for necessary refurbishment works.

Bournemouth Churches Housing Association (BCHA), which owns and manages around 1,500 homes, has now moved people previously living in Melcombe House in Weymouth to other areas around Dorset.

The hostel will officially close on 31 August.
