Local residents have an opportunity to shape new homes in Cheswick Village, South Gloucestershire, as McCarthy & Stone, Britain’s leading retirement housebuilder, reveals proposals to transform a vacant site with high-quality Retirement Living apartments, specifically designed to meet the needs of people in later life.

McCarthy & Stone has acquired an interest in land at ‘The Square’ and is now looking to redevelop the site with a high-quality, contemporary Retirement Living development. The proposals feature 32 one and two bed apartments aimed at people in later life, including 24 car parking spaces and attractive landscaping.

The site, which benefits from an existing outline planning consent, offers an ideal location for specialist housing for people in later life. Indeed, the site is just a short, level walk from the heart of the local area’s shops and services, which are all arranged around a public square now under construction.

McCarthy & Stone will share its proposals with local residents at a public exhibition on Thursday 29 January, between 3pm and 7pm at the Wallscourt Farm Primary Academy, Long Down Avenue, Cheswick Village, BS16 1GE.

Shane Paull, McCarthy & Stone Regional Managing Director, said:

“We have spent time carefully researching the local area to ensure our proposals are an appropriate fit to Cheswick Village. The plans would introduce a specialist form of housing which would help meet an identified and growing need in the area.

He continued:

“We want to hear from the local community before we submit a planning application and will be displaying our plans at the exhibition. Our project team will be at the exhibition to answer questions and listen to feedback and the comments we receive will help us tailor our proposals.”

McCarthy & Stone is renowned for the quality of their developments that give their homeowners the time and opportunity to do things they have always wanted to do. The apartments allow people in later life to retain their independence, close to their family and friends, in a home suited specifically for their needs, in a safe and enjoyable environment.

If you are not able to attend the public exhibition or would like further information, McCarthy & Stone has provided a dedicated freephone information line for you to call (0800 298 7040) and has set up a website covering their initial proposals, which can be found at
