20th November 2019

The Right Worshipful Mayor of Gloucester, Councillor Colin Organ, donned a hi-vis jacket and hard hat last week to help lay an official date brick at McCarthy and StoneScudamore Place, on St. Ann Way in Gloucester Quays.

Councillor Colin Organ joined the McCarthy and Stone team, including Site Manager Adam Lawley, to take a closer look at development plans and find out more about the benefits of Retirement Living.

Located on St Ann Way, the forthcoming Retirement Living development will eventually comprise a selection of one and two-bedroom apartments exclusively for the over 60s.

The Right Worshipful Mayor of Gloucester, Councillor Colin Organ commented: “I was delighted to visit the site of McCarthy and Stone’s forthcoming development in Gloucester, and to have the honour of laying a date brick. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet the construction team and to hear first-hand about the benefits of living in a high quality retirement community. I look forward to seeing construction progress at this new dual development, which will boost the choice of privately-owned downsizing properties for retirees in Gloucester and surrounding areas.

McCarthy and Stone developments are thoughtfully-designed to provide the very best in modern, independent living within a safe and secure environment. Facilities include a homeowners’ lounge, a convenient guest suite, and landscaped gardens maintained by experts. Secure entrance systems and 24-hour emergency call points provide added peace-of-mind; and a House Manager takes care of the running of Retirement Living development

Samantha Watkins, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone West Midlands, commented: "We are delighted that the Mayor of Gloucester, Councillor Colin Organ, was able to take the time to visit our Gloucester site, look at our plans and lay a commemorative date brick.

McCarthy and Stone is committed to designing flexible homes which allow people to make the most of their retirement years, and to live as independently as possible with the benefit of having extra support should they need it. We hope our Gloucester development will provide the ideal setting for retirees to enjoy their retirement to its fullest

The first available properties at McCarthy and Stone dual development in Gloucester will be released for off-plan sales at the Retirement Living development from August 2019, with first occupations expected in January 2020.

More than nine out of ten customers would recommend McCarthy and Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 14 years running. McCarthy and Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade, which is every year the awards have been run.
