A new scheme which will initially provide 60 extra care apartments in Grimsby as part of a wider partnership to deliver 300 extra care apartments

Morgan Sindall Later Living and are leading on the development of this project with partners, architects Melt Design, project management company, Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) and the construction company Esh.

The development is being delivered by Morgan Later Living in association with North East Lincolnshire CCG and Living+, part of the Places for People Group. The scheme will provide much-needed accommodation to address the needs of elderly people in Grimsby.

Extra care housing supports elderly people to live safely and independently with easy access to social activities, in the knowledge that care is at hand when required.

“Keeping their independence is extremely important to most people as they get older. Once complete, the residents will be people with significant care needs who might otherwise have been looking at having to move into a residential care home. Instead, each person or couple will have a purpose designed apartment with their own front door with a professional team on hand to support them with daily health and wellbeing needs. The environment and architecture of this new build will be completely geared up to supporting them to carry out daily tasks themselves which is something most people hold very dear.”

Bev Compton, Director of Adult Services for North East Lincolnshire CCG and
North East Lincolnshire Council

The state-of-the-art development has been designed by award-winning architects, Melt. The scheme will provide apartments for older people together with communal accommodation for residents including secure landscaped grounds and parking.

The building, due to complete in the summer of 2020, will be approximately 5,250 square metres and will be accessible to residents in the region via an application process.

“We are delighted to support the communities we aim to serve.  This development will be our first in Grimsby and we look forward to supporting local people enabling them to live as independently as possible, for as long as possible.”

Debi Marriott-Lavery, Managing Director of Living+

“This is our second extra care facility in Grimsby following Strand Court and we are pleased to be working with our partners at Living+ and the CCG to deliver this much needed facility for the local community. Extra care has proven benefits for residents in this type of development as well as being affordable for the public purse.”

Laurence Bastrurkmen, Managing Director of Morgan Sindall Later Living

“It’s great to be working on another brilliant scheme with Morgan Sindall Later Living which is a fantastic investment for the area. We believe in the importance of building for all tenures and understand there is a real need for this form of accommodation. We are looking forward to engaging with the local community and schools across the area to provide a range of Social Value initiatives whilst delivering this project.”
