In September 2020 outline planning permission was secured on the site of the former Hazeldens Nursery in Albourne. Although the original proposals for the Extra Care scheme with supported living accommodation were submitted by Retirement Villages, a Reserved Matters application is now being progressed by Inspired Villages.
We fully appreciate that residents will have questions about our plans here in Albourne. Here, as we have done elsewhere, we are keen to ensure that our proposals listen to the concerns of local residents whilst delivering lasting benefits to all generations. We will be consulting broadly on the detail of this scheme in the coming months, with the aim of submitting a Reserved Matters application later this year. We look forward to meeting you soon!
What makes our places special?
A fully-equipped facility with a swimming pool, gym and fitness studio. The gym includes E-gym equipment, specifically designed for use by older persons.
The Wellbeing Centre is also available, on a membership basis, to eligible residents within the wider community, and the use of the pool can be made available to the local primary school or other community groups to provide swimming lessons at specific times of the week.
A shop, café/bar, restaurant, meeting room, hairdressers, and areas of open space - these facilities which will also be open to the wider community to use.
