Green light for convenience store and retirement apartments

Edwalton scheme being developed by Charterpoint and Anchor

Planning permission has been approved for a new convenience store and 77 retirement apartments in Edwalton, near Nottingham.

Developer Charterpoint and not-for-profit housing provider Anchor have been given the go-ahead from Rushcliffe Borough Council for the project at the corner of Rose Way and Melton Road.

The 2.2-acre site will include a single-storey convenience store and a three-story retirement apartment complex offering one and two-bedroom units.

Anchor will manage the retirement development, which will feature various amenities and a courtyard garden, along with 77 apartments.

Charterpoint will develop the remaining area for the convenience store.

Charterpoint CEO Adrian Goose said: “We are very pleased to have received reserved matters planning consent for this key plot in Edwalton and to have subsequently sold part of the site to Anchor. 

“The area around the site has grown considerably in recent years, with new housing, retail and commercial developments. Our plan for the site on the corner of Rose Way and Melton Road will bring a new convenience store to the neighbourhood. It will also provide much-needed affordable retirement apartments for the community, operated by Anchor, which will help to free up larger family homes in Edwalton, West Bridgford and the wider area.” 

Patrick Duffy, Anchor’s director of new business, said: “We are delighted to have acquired this site from Charterpoint. This is a key new development for us to work in partnership with Rushcliffe Borough Council to provide affordable homes for older people locally. We look forward to working with Charterpoint to deliver the wider scheme for the local community.”
