Construction completes on second phase of Cheshire retirement village

Delivered by the North West-based contractor Seddon, construction work has recently completed on phase two of Inspired Villages, Gifford Lea development.

Inspired Villages, a leading provider of later living homes, is developing an all-encompassing retirement village in Cheshire. With a build budget of £50million, the retirement village aims to provide a total of 162 properties for over 65’s in Tattenhall.

Situated just eight miles outside of Chester city centre, the second phase of development brings a further 56 new homes to the market. Phase one of the scheme created 48 apartments in 2016, with a third stage expected to commence in Q3 2019.

The development offers a range of one and two bedroom properties, as well as communal social and leisure facilities, including shops, restaurants, a bowling green, gym, wellness spa and relaxation pool.

Jamie Bunce, CEO of Inspired Villages, said: “We’re very pleased to be completing the main facilities at our Gifford Lea community. As well as exceptional facilities, the location enjoys incredible views of the Cheshire countryside. The village reflects the needs of today’s retirees, who want to continue living independently, and yet take reassurance from knowing support is available should they need it.

“Excitement is building for the official opening of the site in July. The central facilities will provide an important focal point for residents and the general public alike to share their passions and interests.”

Ed Wootton, Regional Director at Seddon, said: “Following an extremely successful initial phase, we’re thrilled to have delivered another 56 new homes for the growing over-65 population in Cheshire.

“These luxury, later living spaces are a direct response to the need for dynamic retirement communities in the area, placing the ageing population at the heart of local neighbourhoods. We’re confident that these extremely popular homes are a great addition to Tattenhall.”

The project team included architects, Pozzoni and structural engineers, Scott Hughes.
