The scheme proposals include for the re-development of the site adjacent to and including an existing high rise elderly accommodation block to provide a new 80Nr Apartment Extra Care facility.
The Works are to be completed in two phases allowing for Phase 1 to be constructed in advance of the demolition of the existing block and Phase 2 construction in the location of the existing block. The works are to include all associated site works, services and drainage.
Phase 1 will comprise the construction of a five storey block to include 44Nr apartments (21Nr one bed and 23Nr two bed) together with the communal facilities normally associated with Extra Care facilities.
Phase 2 will commence following completion of Phase 1 and will comprise the demolition of the existing Apley Court building and construction of a six storey block to include 36Nr apartments
(11Nr one bed and 25Nr two bed) connected to the Phase 1 block by a glazed link.
There will be a time lag between the end of the existing block and the commencement of Phase 2 due to the need to decant the remaining residents of Apley Court into Phase 1 and the following disconnection of services and preparation for demolition of Apley Court. It is anticipated that this period will be three to six months due to statutory service authority response periods.
This scheme is at planning stage.
