We’re building a new retirement living block in Coventry

We are building a new retirement living block in Coventry after plans were recently approved by planners.

The Ebbw Vale development in Cheylesmore, Coventry will provide 30 one-bedroom flats. It will replace our existing retirement living accommodation at Eric Inott House, as well as the previous building that was at the site – an over 55’s development of 16 flats – which was demolished a few years ago.

The new three storey development will provide the over 55s with modern day homes and the complex will also be all-electric.

It will have photovoltaic panels on the roof which will contribute towards the running costs of communal lighting and reduce the service charges for our customers.

Our Executive Director of Development Nick Byrne said: “We’re really pleased to start work on this scheme which will provide modern housing for the over 55s.

“The development is part of a programme of works to replace our existing elderly person accommodation, specifically Eric Inott House, and the accommodation previously at the site, with modern day homes.

“The development will provide a facility that will serve the needs of residents for years to come allowing them to remain in the community which they are part of.

“We have worked hard with our Retirement Living team and Asset Management team to formulate the design and specification of the building – it’s been a fantastic cross team effort.”

Work on the development is set to start in May 2021 and the development is expected to be completed by December 2022.
