Poundbury retirement development gets green light
5:34pm Thursday 10th January 2013 in News
PLANNERS have approved a new 62-apartment retirement development for Poundbury.
The collection of one and two bedroom properties will offer assisted living for those aged over 70 and above on a private basis adjacent to Queen Mother Square.
Retirement property developer McCarthy and Stone has welcomed the decision of West Dorset District Council to approve the planning application and plans to start work on site in July.
Regional sales and marketing director Aileen King said: “Approval for such a prominent site is an exciting opportunity to provide a unique housing solution for the over 70s.
“Our assisted living development will be the first of its kind in West Dorset.
“It will increase the options for continued home ownership later in life in a location that supports our own principal of creating communities.”
