Double planning success means 97 new retirement apartments coming soon to Rushcliffe Borough

Churchill Living has been granted two separate planning permissions to build 97 brand new retirement apartments in the local area – 43 in Ruddington and 54 in West Bridgford. The new developments on Manor Park (Ruddington) and Bridgford Road (West Bridgford) will each be perfectly located for the shops and amenities of the respective town centres, and close to public transport links.

The privately-owned apartments at these brand new developments will provide attractive, high quality, secure and self-contained accommodation in landscaped grounds. As with all Churchill Living developments, Owners will have the benefits of a communal Owners’ Lounge, a Guest Suite, a Lodge Manager, and a 24 hour emergency call alarm service.

With less to worry about, Owners will have more time to do the things they enjoy, such as having family or friends to stay in the development’s well-appointed Guest Suite, enjoying a chat with neighbours, or attending one of the regular social events in the comfortable Owners’ Lounge.

Stuart Goodwill, Managing Director of Churchill Living’s in-house Planning consultancy, said:

I’d like to thank everyone who has helped towards achieving these two very positive planning consents. There is a compelling overall housing need in Ruddington, West Bridgford and the surrounding area, especially for older people, and these two sites are in highly sustainable and accessible locations for new developments of this kind. Allowing older people to downsize will also help free up more homes for families and younger people in the local area.

Delivery of 97 new retirement apartments will meet existing and future need in the area and will provide these key benefits:

  • Allows older people to downsize and free up under occupied houses in the local area for families
  • Provides older people with safety, security and companionship
  • Benefits the ‘basket shopping economy’ as its central location encourages residents to shop locally
  • Provides an attractive, bespoke building which complements the existing streetscape
  • Creates efficiencies by allowing Health and Social Services practitioners to visit several residents at once, leading to a more effective use of public resources
  • Reduces the need to travel by car, due to proximity to local facilities
