A retirement home offering flexible living accommodation for the over 55s is on its way to the South West. Bath and North East Somerset (BANES) have approved a planning application for 11 flats in Timsbury. With a maturing population, older people are now key players in the housing market. A new type of housing stock needs to meet this growing requirement. These self-contained flats and maisonettes hope to satisfy that demand.
More recently, developments in age-friendly housing designs and new features are making a considerable difference. This site, located just outside Bath will provide some much needed flexible accommodation. Most importantly, these units are thoughtfully designed to deliver suitable housing for the more active elderly. The self-contained, 2-bedroom apartments and maisonettes offer flexible accommodation with shared amenities, including a gym, swimming pool, therapy and treatment rooms, shared gardens, allotments and much more.
