Living Plus, which is part of the Places for People Group, in partnership with specialist extra-care housing developer, Morgan Sindall Later Living and Esh Construction, have achieved practical completion on a new extra care scheme, Burchester Court, in Grimsby, bringing 60 purpose-built new homes to the town.
The teams worked alongside North East Lincolnshire CCG, North East Lincolnshire Council and Homes England to deliver the project, bringing an independent living option to the town for people who have care and support needs, or those who may need them in the future.
The apartments at Burchester Court have been created within the development at Winchester Avenue on the Nunsthorpe Estate, bringing a new architectural standard to the area. A number of the homes have already been reserved, with the remaining homes now available to rent by eligible local people.
The building will offer 24-hour onsite care, a café, a hair and beauty salon, lounges and gardens for socialising, as well as guest suites for family or friends to stay overnight. It is also in close proximity to Centre One – a much loved community hub.
“Reaching practical completion at Burchester Court is a fantastic milestone for Lovell Later Living, its partners and for those looking for extra care accommodation in the North East Lincolnshire area.
Laurence Basturkmen, director at Lovell Later Living, said:
“Extra care schemes such as this, provide residents and their families with complete reassurance and peace of mind that they are living in a safe, self-contained yet engaging environment, where they can meet like-minded people and enjoy life, but where they can get the support and professional care they need, if and when required.
“This is our second extra care facility in Grimsby, and we are very pleased to be working with our partners again to deliver this much needed facility for the local community.”
The Places for People Group owns or manages more than 209,000 homes across the UK and is committed to delivering affordable homes to rent or buy.
