Dan Jarvis, has marked the start of construction at McCarthy Stone’s new Retirement Living development in Barnsley.

Dan Jarvis MP joined McCarthy Stone’s Marketing Executive, Tina Morrell, and site manager, Mark Hornsby, at the site on Berneslai Close to explore development plans and officially celebrate the start of construction. 

When complete, the new Barnsley development will comprise 43 one-bedroom and two-bedroom luxurious apartments. The sales launch is expected in summer 2020, with the first occupations scheduled for autumn 2020.

Dan Jarvis MP commented: “It was a pleasure to visit the site of McCarthy Stone’s upcoming development in Barnsley and mark the start of construction there. The plans for the build look fantastic and it’s hugely exciting that construction is now under way. I’m sure future homeowners will be very happy with the development and I look forward to seeing it when it’s complete.”

Liz Green, Regional Sales and Marketing Director from McCarthy Stone North East, added: “We are thrilled that Barnsley Central, Dan Jarvis, was able to take the time to visit our upcoming Barnsley development, and take a look at the plans for the Retirement Living apartments that will be available for future homeowners in early 2021. 

“McCarthy Stone is committed to designing contemporary, flexible homes which allow people to live their retirement independently and to the full. It was great to be able to showcase the plans, and we are thoroughly looking forward to becoming an integrated part of the Barnsley community.”

Future homeowners in Barnsley will benefit from a communal lounge, where they can relax and socialise with new neighbours, a guest suite for when friends or family come to say, and beautifully maintained landscaped gardens.
Built with security in mind, the development will feature a 24-hour emergency call system and a dedicated House Manager will also help to provide peace-of-mind for homeowners.

Barnsley is nestled in the foothills of the Peak District, half way between Leeds and Sheffield. The town centre has plenty of amenities on offer, including a wide variety of high street shops, banks, pharmacies, a Post Office, supermarkets, and hairdressers, as well as cafes, bars and restaurants all within walking distance. There are also excellent public transport connections to surrounding towns and cities, with Barnsley train station a short distance from the development.
