So not only 49 fantastic extra care apartments, but new jobs as well!
Mainly 2 bed apartments, some will be for sale, but the majority will be for affordable let for those aged 55 years and over. In addition to the apartments, there will be a communal eating place/ restaurant and a large lounge type space, a hair salon, a crafts and other activities room, a spiritual and well being room, laundry and also an outside facility being a kind of shed, where men and yes also women can go to fix and build things and generally do shed type pottering. Not forgetting to mention a communal garden, where residents can tend the garden themselves if they wish.
It was estimated that the start date for clearing the site and starting to build will be around this May 2015.
