Our plans for Kingswood
The retirement village will be located on the site of Legal & General House, the former head office of Inspired Villages’ partner Legal & General, in Kingswood, Surrey.
Legal and General House, St Monica’s Road, Kingswood, KT20 6EU.
Inspired Villages is pleased to announce that Reigate and Banstead Borough Council has approved its plans to deliver one of the UK’s largest retirement living communities on the site of Legal & General House.
Inspired Villages will be carefully transforming the vacant and dilapidated 43-acre site into a vibrant later living community with 270 specialist age-appropriate apartments and on-site communal facilities. Plans also include up to 10 respite units, allowing Inspired Villages to work with local GP practices and hospitals to help reduce pressure on the NHS and local care services.
The communal facilities, which will be accessible to everyone in the local area, include a wellness centre (comprising a swimming pool, studio, gymnasium, and tennis courts), dining and recreation facilities and a small business centre.
Inspired is committed to protecting and enhancing this green belt asset and will only build on previously developed areas. Furthermore, it will make up to 16 acres of parkland more easily accessible for the local community in perpetuity.
The scheme was developed over a 15-month period in close consultation with key stakeholders, including, Historic England, the Kingswood Residents’ Association, the Copt Hill Lane Association, and the council’s technical officers, leading to strong written support for the proposals.
Inspired Villages has now submitted information to Reigate and Banstead Borough Council to satisfy planning conditions and enable preparatory works to begin on-site in 2021.
We will regularly be updating this page with information and construction progress at Kingswood.
Work is due to commence at Kingswood in Spring 2021. The first phase of development, the refurbishment of Legal & General House, is due to be completed in early 2023. All phases will be completed by 2029.
