Haybridge Hall development given the green light
13 December 2016
Head of Development, Jean Teichmann said: “Our plans involve the partial demolition of the old hall building but the retention of the halls original façade. Where possible we would like to retain original features and create interest and a sense of history. A glazed courtyard and atrium should make this a very pleasant place to live.”
The Trust is also building 12 new bungalows nearby at Hall Gardens and a further 12 on a site near Dee Close in Wellington.
As well as providing much needed housing for older people, the construction of the new homes will deliver £10 million into the economy and create 34 construction jobs including four apprentice positions.
Let by Wrekin Retirement Living, the new homes will offer tenants easy to manage, modern properties for their retirement and new residents will benefit from additional services such as a dedicated Retirement Living Coordinator, newsletters and organised social activities.
Tenant Services Manager, Paula Reynolds said: “We’re delighted to make plans for these much needed bungalows and apartments. These new homes follow the completion of 37 new bungalows earlier this year in Brookside and Wellington which proved very popular and have been fully let. We are also undertaking an extensive refurbishment programme of existing Retirement Living community rooms which means tenants can enjoy additional space as an extension to their own homes. They are perfect for meeting friends and holding events which helps to prevent social isolation in our older tenants.”
