Spartacus Clos de Barbier properties are built to life time standards which means that as people get older they can stay in their own home instead of moving into a residential home or some other option. If you saw the size of the spare room I don’t think you would describe it as “extravagant” These small extra rooms are there in case a carer wants to live in or in the mean time a member of the family if one or both residents get sick for period of time and also so children and grandchildren can stay for a visit, not all tenants relatives still live on the island. Or they can use the extra space for a hobby or other activity if they choose. These people are not battery hens and our job is to provide decent accommodation for those who wish to access this kind of housing. We cannot base what we do on what happens in other housing tenures or the opinions of those who appear envious of the space other have.
