This high quality 100% affordable housing scheme for older people provides 40 extra care flats in a beautiful setting. The design was conceived prior to the HAPPI report, yet displays many of its recommendations and was described by the Housing Design Award Judges as 'setting the benchmark for all housing for older people in the UK' and by the Housebuilder Awards Judges as 'the best of its kind in Europe, with every aspect of the development researched and applied'.
The high quality development incorporates key design features to meet the needs of older people both now and in the future.
