Local residents gathered at an exhibition at Patchway Community Centre on 28th June 2016 to discuss proposals to develop two brownfield sites at Charlton Hayes with Retirement Living apartments and high-quality Assisted Living (Extra Care) accommodation. The sites are known as MU5 and MU6 and are located at the southern end of Charlton Boulevard, close to Hayes Way.
The exhibition was held by Your Life Management Services (a joint venture between McCarthy & Stone, the UK’s leading retirement housebuilder, and Somerset Care, a not-for-profit care provider).
The early proposals that were on display will, if approved, develop vacant brownfield land, which is allocated for development in the Charlton Hayes masterplan, with around 40 one- and two-bed Retirement Living apartments and 60 Assisted Living (Extra Care) accommodation units, along with professional landscaping and car parking for residents, visitors and care providers.
Local residents and senior community figures (including elected representatives of South Gloucestershire Council and Patchway Town Council) attended on the day to view the plans, meet the development team and provide initial feedback on the proposals, which are due to be submitted formally for consideration in the coming months.

Simon Mantell, McCarthy & Stone regional managing director, said:
“The public exhibition was an excellent opportunity for us to understand the views of the local community and I would like to take this opportunity to thank people for their constructive comments and questions.”
“We have worked hard to ensure our proposals represent a sensitive development which complements the local area with high-quality materials and a design that develops this vacant part of Charlton Hayes. We believe this site is an ideal location to provide much-needed Retirement Living and Assisted Living accommodation in South Gloucestershire, which will also assist in freeing up family homes for other residents living locally.”
“Our proposals represent a significant investment right in the centre of this new community, which will help improve and enhance the wider development, as well as bringing jobs during the construction phase.”
Estate management, care and support would be provided by Your Life Management Services, which is registered with the Care Quality Commission. The development would be over-seen by a fully-registered estate manager, with staff based on site and support available 24-hours a day.
Further information on the proposals is available by calling McCarthy and Stone’s dedicated Freephone information line (0800 298 7040) or visiting www.mccarthyandstoneconsultation.co.uk/charltonhayes/
