PLANNING permission has been granted for new retirement flats in Stratford.
The scheme will see 55 flats – a mixture of one and two bedroom homes, complete with car parking – built the Crown Buildings site on Alcester Road.
The development, which will also feature communal facilities including residents’ lounge, mobility scooter charging and storage room, was given the green-light by Stratford District Council.
Matt Wills, divisional managing director at McCarthy Stone, said: “Our proposals will help to address the local demand for specialist retirement accommodation, providing greater choice for those in later life whilst freeing up the wider housing market for families and first-time buyers further down the chain.
“We would like to thank local stakeholders and residents for their input and feedback throughout the planning process and we look forward to becoming part of the community.”
