Working with architect PRP, the Stockport based housing association has plans to to create 53 new Cheadle apartments on Edinburgh Close to deliver an extra care scheme.
Reported on Place North West, the proposed apartment block will replace a 1960’s existing sheltered housing development. The council will continue to maintain ownership of the land while the new development will be operated by Stockport Homes.
Plans have been submitted to Stockport Council for consideration to provide a mix of 53 one and two-bed extra care units, split between 37 one-beds and 14 two-beds.
Accessed from Councillor Lane, a proposed bistro, hair salon, lounge, laundry facilities, and landscaped gardens will create a ‘village’ for the over 55s.
The architect said the proposals would provide:
“A home for life within a community of like mined older people, within apartments that can be adapted for the particular users needs.
“Along with the social and emotional support provided to residents by staff it is essential that the physical environment is enabling in terms of the likely impairments that those residents will experience with increasing age and frailty.”
