Churchill Retirement Living has lodged a planning application for a new retirement living development in West Bridgford. See image
The site is located on vacant and previously developed land at the former Sandicliffe Motors showroom on Loughborough Road.
|Former Sandicliffe Motor Group 5 – 27 Loughborough Road West Bridgford Nottinghamshire NG2 7LJ|
|Proposal||Redevelopment of site to form 54 retirement living apartments, together with access, communal facilities, car parking and landscaping.|
The new Churchill development would provide one and two bedroom apartments specially designed for the over 60s.
Owners would have the benefits of safety, security and peace of mind, with a Lodge Manager provided by Millstream Management Services, a 24 hour Careline, Owners’ Lounge and Guest Suite, all in beautifully landscaped grounds.
The design of the attractive new development has been carefully produced to ensure it will make a positive contribution to the character and appearance of the area, relating sensitively to the adjacent buildings.
Andrew Burgess, Group Land & Planning Director of Churchill Retirement Living, comments:
“There is a compelling overall housing need in West Bridgford, especially for older people. Our proposed development will go some way to increasing access to this type of housing for local residents. By meeting this rising demand, we can allow older people to downsize and free up under occupied houses in the local area for families.
“The site is excellently located, right at the heart of West Bridgford, within easy walking distance of the town centre, and on a site that has stood vacant and disused for some time.
“As well as meeting the need for high-quality retirement apartments, the development will bring benefits to the local economy. Owners will be within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and other amenities in the town, helping to boost local businesses.”
Delivery of new retirement apartments will meet existing and future need in the area and will provide these key benefits:
· Allows older people to downsize and free up under occupied houses in the local area for families
· Provides older people with safety, security and companionship
· Benefits the ‘basket shopping economy’ as its central location encourages Owners to shop locally
· Provides an attractive, bespoke building which complements the existing streetscape
· Creates efficiencies by allowing Health and Social Services practitioners to visit several Owners at once, leading to a more effective use of public resources
· Reduces the need to travel by car, due to proximity to local facilities
