Mayor of Nuneaton and Bedworth lays foundation for new retirement development

21 May 2019

The Mayor of Nuneaton and Bedworth, Councillor Mrs June Tandy, donned a hi-vis jacket and hard hat last week to help lay an official date brick at McCarthy Stone’s brand new Retirement Living development, The Close on Church Street.

The Mayor, Councillor Tandy, joined the McCarthy Stone team, including Site Manager Adam Walker and Customer Relationship Manager, Helene Key, to take a closer look at development plans and find out more about the benefits of the Retirement Living. 

Located on Church Street, the forthcoming Retirement Living development will comprise a selection of one and two-bedroom apartments exclusively for the over 60s. 

The Mayor, Councillor Tandy commented: “I was delighted to visit the site of McCarthy Stone’s forthcoming development in Nuneaton, and to have the honour of laying a date brick. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet the construction team and to hear first-hand about the benefits of living in a high quality retirement community. 

“I look forward to seeing construction progress at this new development which will boost the choice of privately-owned downsizing properties for retirees in Nuneaton and surrounding areas.”

McCarthy Stone developments are thoughtfully-designed to provide the very best in modern, independent living within a safe and secure environment. Facilities include a homeowners’ lounge, a convenient guest suite, and landscaped gardens maintained by experts. Secure entrance systems and 24-hour emergency call points provide added peace-of-mind; and a House Manager takes care of the running of Retirement Living developments.

Cheryl Bissett, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone East Midlands, commented: “We are delighted that the Mayor of Nuneaton and Bedworth, Councillor Chris Watkins, was able to take the time to visit our Nuneaton site, look at our plans and lay a commemorative date brick.  

“McCarthy Stone is committed to designing flexible homes which allow people to make the most of their retirement years, and to live as independently as possible with the benefit of having extra support should they need it. We hope our Nuneaton development will provide the ideal setting for retirees to enjoy their retirement to its fullest.” 

The first available properties at McCarthy Stone’s development in Nuneaton will be released for off-plan sales at the Retirement Living development from September 2019, with first occupations expected in Spring 2020. 

More than 90 percent of customers would recommend McCarthy Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the maximum Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 14 years’ running.  It is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade for 14 years, which is every year since the awards have been running.
