Retirement Villages Ltd recently announced that it has applied to transform a site near East Grinstead into a purpose built retirement community mainly in the south of the UK known as Charter Towers. Plans for the 16 acre site will have 83 low density, purpose-built extra care properties and a 60-bed care home for the Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC). The community is expected to provide care and support for around 180 residents. Retirement Villages plans to refurbish the existing Edwardian manor house as the focal point of the CCRC.
“The consultation process we have undertaken has ensured we have developed plans which will fulfil a need within the community while remaining sympathetic to the surroundings and our neighbours,”said Retirement Villages’ Development Director Jami Puckering. “We will continue working on the finer details of the plans with Tandridge District Council over the coming months. Meanwhile, we are delighted with the support they have shown for the project which will become a leading example of a care village in the UK.”
