The ExtraCare Charitable Trust has exchanged contracts with Milton Keynes Development Partnership (MKDP) to expand Shenley Wood Village, one of its two retirement villages in Milton Keynes, onto adjoining land.
Due to the overwhelming success of Shenley Wood Village, which comprises 300 apartments with leisure and health facilities, there is strong demand for expansion. To meet this, ExtraCare is looking to develop apartments and bungalows, with a planning application due to be submitted shortly.
Hardev Thandy, the Head of Growth and Construction at ExtraCare, said, “Both of our villages in Milton Keynes are extremely popular, so working with MKDP to provide much needed additional homes for older people is a very exciting opportunity.”
Property Development Director at MKDP, Matthew Green, added, “We are delighted to be facilitating the expansion of Shenley Wood Village. The increased capacity will deliver high-quality homes, of which almost half will be affordable tenures, opening up to more over 55s in the city the fantastic facilities which make an ExtraCare village such a great place to live.”
ExtraCare is a registered charity which develops, operates and supports 16 villages and four housing schemes across the Midlands and neighbouring areas. Focussed on creating sustainable communities, ExtraCare delivers not just homes, of which it has over 4,200, that older people want but also enables its residents to enjoy a range of facilities and access care if needed.
