With planning permission secured, preliminary preparation work will soon begin at Gradwell Park in South Chailey – site of Retirement Villages’ newest development.
Permission has been granted to build state of the art care facilities for the local elderly population, consisting of a 40-bed care home and 40 extra care apartments and cottages with residents’ clubhouse.
Further surveys are now being carried out on site and specialist fencing erected to facilitate the relocation of newts and reptiles from the development site and onto adjoining land. This work will continue throughout the spring and summer.
This autumn and winter, the development area will be cleared of foliage to just above ground level and in spring 2017 the remaining trunks and roots will be removed and construction of the retirement scheme will begin in the middle of 2017.
If you have any questions about our plans, wish to express an interest in the development or experience any issues with the work outlined, please do not hesitate to contact us at our head office on 01372 383950.
