Residents invited to help shape proposals to improve housing options for older people in Hanham

25 May 2015

McCarthy & Stone, the UK’s leading retirement housebuilder, is in the early stages of preparing plans for an Assisted Living scheme off Harolds Way in Hanham.

This vacant site already has outline planning permission for a care development however, unlike previous applications on this site, McCarthy & Stone’s plans do not propose access from Harold’s Way. Instead the development will be accessed off the High Street/Bryant’s Hill roundabout. This is to avoid pressure building up on the one-way traffic system through Footshill Road and Tabernacle Road.

McCarthy & Stone is committed to engaging with the local community and wants to discuss its proposals with the local community. A public exhibition will therefore take place on Monday 15 June at Hanham Community Centre, 124 High St, Hanham, BS15 3EJ, between 3pm - 7pm.

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

“We want to hear from the local community further 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 on what we have done so far, and the comments we receive will help us tailor our proposals.

“Following early meetings with residents we are already aware of, and sympathetic to, local feelings about access and traffic. This is why our proposals include an access point off the A431 and not Harold’s Way.”

Assisted Living schemes offer residents accommodation for life regardless of changes to their care needs, featuring a high specification of communal and shared facilities to address everyday needs, including a restaurant and dining room with on-site catering 365 days a year.
