Retirement Villages Ltd recently announced that it has applied to refurbish the existing Edwardian Manor house as the focal point of a new continuing care retirement community (CCRC). The multi-million pound investment by Retirement Villages Ltd would create around 100 jobs and would breath new life into the site off Felcourt Road on the fringes of East Grinstead – currently the Sabrewatch Security site and previously the world famous Bush Davies Ballet School. If approved by Tandridge District Council planners, the 16 acre site will house a total of 83 extra care units and a 60 bed registered care home.
“Charters Towers represents an exciting project for us and also, we hope, for the local community,” said Chief Executive of Retirement Villages Ltd Jon Gooding. “The provision of extra care accommodation we are proposing would meet a need within the area which extensive consultation has identified. And we would love to be able to restore this beautiful house and grounds.
