The Challenge

To design a masterplan for 24 assisted-living retirement homes on a greenfield site adjacent to Albion Lodge. To develop a planning strategy that will achieve planning permission.

The Outcome

Our masterplan takes in the whole site with the aim of creating a retirement complex that provides for all levels of retirement living within attractive landscaped grounds that benefit from fine views to the Malvern Hills. The planning strategy draws on aspects of the local village plan and has received the support of the Parish Council. It is also in accord with the Extra Care Strategy put forward by Worcestershire County Council, and pre-application advice from the local authority has been largely favourable.
