Public Exhibition - Proposed Retirement Living redevelopment in Tenterden

24 July 2014

Local residents have an opportunity to comment on plans for new homes in Tenterden as McCarthy & Stone reveals proposals to redevelop the site with high-quality apartments, specifically designed to meet the needs of people in later life.

McCarthy & Stone recognise that getting older can present challenges, but their experience ensures they are able to provide the support, services and aspirations to help their residents live happier, healthier and longer lives.

McCarthy & Stone will share their proposals with local residents at a public exhibition on Thursday 14th August, at Tenterden Town Hall, 24 High Street, Tenterden, TN30 6AN. between 3.30pm and 7pm. 

A representative of McCarthy & Stone said: “We’ve spent time carefully researching the architecture and character of the local area, but we need to ensure that what we build is what our customers, as well as the local community, would like to see in Tenterden.”

“Our understanding of the local housing market has helped inform the nature of the proposals and we consider that our proposed apartments will add a further dimension to the range of homes already available.”  

“To ensure the local community has been kept informed of the proposals, McCarthy & Stone held a series of individual meetings with immediate residents and stakeholders. It was a good opportunity to ask questions about the proposed development on a one to one basis.”

He continued: “Our project team will be at the forthcoming exhibition to answer questions and listen to feedback on what we’ve done so far. The comments we receive will help us tailor our proposals into something people will want to see, enjoy and call home.”

McCarthy & Stone are renowned for the quality of their developments that give their homeowners the time and opportunity to do things they’ve 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 customer’s needs, in a safe and enjoyable environment.

If you aren’t 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 will set up a website covering their initial proposals which can be found at, which will go live nearer the time.
