Residents to help shape retirement proposals for Land at Companions Close, Wickersley

06 February 2014

McCarthy & Stone, the UK’s leading developer of retirement apartments, has acquired an interest in land at Companions Close, Wickersley and is proposing to redevelop the site with high-quality Retirement Living accommodation.

McCarthy & Stone is committed to engaging with the local community and will be offering residents the opportunity to meet with the project team to discuss the early proposals and, where possible, will incorporate their views into the final plans.

Steve Secker, Regional Managing Director for McCarthy & Stone Northern Region said, “We’re keen to develop a scheme which positively contributes to the local community both through the high-quality, attractive design and the increase in local housing choice the development would bring”.

McCarthy & Stone believes that Wickersley is an area where there is a local need for this type of accommodation. In addition, occupants typically looking to ease the burden of maintaining a large property would allow these homes to become available on the market to local families who wish to remain in the area.

Arrangements are currently being made to meet local stakeholders and neighbours of the site to give them an opportunity to view the early proposals; this will be followed by a public exhibition in the near future for the wider community to view the scheme.
