Residents’ invited to help shape plans for retirement accommodation in Newmarket

28 August 2015

A public exhibition will give local residents the opportunity to view and comment on McCarthy and Stone’s preliminary plans to redevelop ‘Kinivie’ on Fordham Road, Newmarket.

McCarthy and Stone’s plans seek to redevelop this site with much-needed Retirement Living apartments, specifically designed to meet the needs of local people in later life, together with car parking and professionally landscaped gardens.

The public exhibition marks the next stage of the community consultation and will be held:
On: Thursday 10th September 2015
At: Memorial Hall, High Street, Newmarket, CB8 8JP Between: 3pm – 7pm

McCarthy and Stone believes the redevelopment of the site offers an important opportunity to provide much needed Retirement Living apartments, increasing the housing choice for local older people. The local over 65s population is predicted to rise by 84% over the next 20 years.

Mark Wright, Regional Managing Director at McCarthy and Stone said:

“We have spent time carefully researching the architecture and character of the local area, and our proposals feature a traditional design. We’ve worked hard to make sure our proposal for the site feels like it belongs to Newmarket.”

He continued:

“We want to hear from the local community and our future home-owners before we submit a planning application. We will be displaying our plans at a public exhibition and our project team will be there to answer questions and listen to feedback on what we have done so far. The comments we receive will help us tailor our proposal into something people will want to see, enjoy and call home.”

McCarthy and Stone is renowned for the quality of its developments that give 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 their own home suited specifically for homeowners’ needs, in a safe and enjoyable environment.
