Planning permission has been granted for a new Assisted Living development in Welwyn Garden City.
McCarthy & Stone, Britain's largest retirement specialist, has been given the go-ahead to build an attractive collection of 57 private apartments exclusively for those aged 70 and over.
The one and two bedroom properties, designed especially for those who still want to enjoy the independence of retirement but require a little extra day-to-day assistance, will be conveniently situated on the site of the former constabulary police station, in the heart of Welwyn Garden City and close to the bustling high street.
McCarthy & Stone has more than 30 years' experience in the retirement and assisted living sectors and currently has nearly 150 selling developments across Britain. All McCarthy & Stone developments are designed to promote an active retirement and include facilities such as a residents' lounge, guest suites, laundry rooms and a lifts.
Assisted Living retirement bridges the gap between more conventional retirement living and residential care or nursing homes, by offering a range of additional features such as a waitress service restaurant plus domestic assistance and personal care that can be tailored to meet the changing needs of residents in retirement. An estates manager will oversee the running of the development, while staff will be on site 24 hours a day.
Wendy Slingo, regional sales and marketing director, commented: "We're thrilled to be adding to our growing property portfolio in Hertfordshire, and we are sure that this Assisted Living development will be a welcomed addition to the area.
"As Britain's largest retirement specialists, we understand our customer's wants and needs. What we offer them is the chance to retain their independence whilst having the peace of mind of additional security, low maintenance and companionship."
