Many of our readers will be aware that the Planning Inspector approved the development of retirement homes on appeal.
McCarthy and Stone have subsequently released this statement:
Multi-million-pound retirement accommodation in Audlem approved
McCarthy and Stone, the UK's leading retirement housebuilder, has been given the go-ahead to build high-quality, Retirement Living apartments on Audlem Road, Audlem. The project will create up to 120 jobs during the construction phase and represents a multi-million-pound investment in the local area.
The development will see the site transformed into 25 one- and two-bedroom apartments complete with on-site parking and professionally maintained, landscaped gardens. McCarthy and Stone offer more than a new home; they offer a new lifestyle and opportunity for older people to embrace retirement, enabling homeowners to pursue new pastimes and interests. Homeowners can socialise as much or as little as they wish, with a variety of events from coffee mornings to jazz evenings, there is something for everyone.
Ian Wilkins, Regional Managing Director at McCarthy and Stone (North West) Region said:
"Naturally we are delighted to have received planning permission for this development. There is a real need for this type of accommodation in the local area and we believe that this scheme will create an opportunity to provide much-needed specialised housing, allowing older people to downsize and remain in Audlem near friends and family."
McCarthy and Stone's Retirement Living apartments are specifically designed to meet the needs of people in later life, offering homeowners an active, independent lifestyle in a safe and secure environment. Typically, occupants of these apartments are looking to ease the burden of maintaining a larger property, in turn releasing these homes onto the market for local families looking to move up the property ladder.
