The company says its new Retirement Living development, called Cranberry Court, will be exclusively for people aged 60 and over.

Building work is expected to get under way this summer and the first properties will be released for sale in December this year.

The first residents are expected to move in by summer next year.

Cheryl Bissett, regional sales and marketing director, said: “We are committed to delivering the right development for the needs of the local area.

“Cranberry Court will not only provide retirement living in a prime location, it will also breathe new life into the wider community.”

Facilities at the development will include a homeowners’ lounge ideal for socialising with friends, beautifully landscaped gardens, an on-site car park, and a guest suite if friends or relatives wish to stay.

The complex will also have its own House Manager, a security entrance system and 24-hour emergency call points.

Ms Bissett added: “Our Retirement Living development will offer homeowners the independence of retaining home ownership, while living in a secure, high specification, energy efficient apartment.

“With the maintenance of all external and communal areas taken care of, homeowners can spend more time with family and friends.”
