Local residents invited to help shape plans for retirement accommodation in Brough

03 August 2015

McCarthy and Stone, the UK’s leading retirement housebuilder, is inviting feedback from residents on its proposals to redevelop land off Elloughton Road in Brough, with high-quality retirement apartments. The apartments would include a mix of one and two bedrooms, with on-site car parking.

McCarthy and Stone has a wealth of experience delivering homes that are specifically designed to meet the needs of people in later life. Understanding that getting older can present new challenges, McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living schemes allow people to retain the independence and privacy of their own home, with the opportunity to enjoy the company of others. Developments include communal facilities, such as a homeowners’ lounge, professionally landscaped gardens, lift access to all floors and an internal refuse room.

Local residents are invited to view McCarthy & Stone’s early proposals at a public exhibition:
On: Tuesday 11 August 2015
Between: 3pm and 7pm
At: Blackburn Leisure Social Club, Prescott Avenue, Brough, HU15 1BB

Steve Secker, Regional Managing Director for McCarthy & Stone (Northern Region) said;

“We understand that the character of the area is important to the community, and our team of architects has spent time considering local architecture before designing our initial plans. We are confident that our proposal would provide a sensitively designed development that would enhance the area and meet an identified need for specialist retirement accommodation."

“Before we submit a planning application, we want to hear the views of local residents. Members of the project team will be on hand at the public exhibition to answer questions and listen to feedback. The proposals are at a very early stage and where possible we will amend our plans to reflect people’s comments.”

In many cases, homeowners at McCarthy and Stone developments are looking to ease the burden of maintaining a larger home that is then released onto the housing market for families looking to move up the property ladder.

McCarthy and Stone is committed to engaging with the local community ahead of submitting a planning application.
