The property industry received some welcome news last week with property sales hitting a five-year high, according to HMRC.
And even Friday’s gloomy GDP figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) couldn’t pour complete cold water on the construction industry with news that this sector saw output rising by 0.3%.
We can also report some very positive news for the retirement property sector in particular as we get ready to unveil our newest retirement village to the public this week.
Once upon a time, new development openings fell as regularly as confetti. In today’s very different economic climate, they are rare indeed.
And that’s why we are very proud to announce the opening of Charters Village, near East Grinstead in West Sussex.
Once completed, this £35million village will comprise 83 privately-owned retirement properties and a residential and nursing centre. At its heart is the refurbished Charters Towers which will become the hub for village life, hosting all village events and home to the numerous communal facilities.
Charters Village is being developed on the former site of the Bush Davies dance school. We know how much affection there was for the school in the local area and we hope our village will become just as important a part of the community.
New retirement village developments, like all new build schemes, are sought after occasions in today’s building climate and that’s why we want to celebrate this week’s event.
Charters Village is a remarkable achievement by many, many people and we hope visitors who come along to see it for themselves this week as well as over the coming months, appreciate its importance to the local community and to the generation of older people it is designed to serve.
