Developer gets go-ahead for major retirement scheme

The site of an historic laundry business on the outskirts of Nottingham is set to be turned to new retirement complex.

McCarthy Stone has been given the go-ahead for the scheme on Mansfield Road in Daybrook and work will begin on developing 51 retirement apartments in the Spring of next year.

The former Daybrook Laundry building which sat on the site was demolished around 50 years ago.

The new building will be three storeys high and include a garden, communal lounge and guest suites.

McCarthy Stone’s business development manager, Declan Fishwick, told Nottinghamshire Live: “We are thrilled to announce that planning permission has been granted for a new integrated and inclusive retirement community here in Daybrook. Ideally located in the popular suburb of Nottingham within close proximity to a wealth of amenities and excellent transport links, the development is designed to provide everything retirees could need for an independent and fulfilling retirement.

“Designed with ease of living in mind, this development aims to meet the needs of local retirees seeking a balance of independence, security, and assistance should they require it. Plus, with apartments available with the Older Peron’s Shared Ownership scheme, people aged 60 and over can move more easily and flexibly, which frees up family housing within the local area.”
