McCarthy & Stone consults on Charlton Hayes proposals

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.

The information displayed at the consultation event may now be viewed online here: Sites MU5 and MU6, Hayes Way, Charlton Hayes

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.”

Charlton Hayes Summer Fun Day on Saturday

Posted on Wednesday 10th June 2015 at 6:21 pm by SH (Editor)

Charlton Hayes Summer Fun Day on Saturday 13th June 2015.

Charlton Hayes residents are being invited to attend their summer fun day on Saturday (13th June). This is the third community fun day for residents of this rapidly expanding community. With over 900 homes occupied, the community fun day plays a vital role in getting residents together to help create shared memories.

At this year’s event, a wide variety of activities will be on offer, many of which are free, including the face painting, a bouncy castle and the World Jungle circus skills workshop. There will be opportunities to meet staff from Southern Brooks Community Partnerships, the local developmental charity whose community development worker has led in the organising of this fun day.

Residents will also meet Caitlin, who is running a cultivate project until the autumn to plant edible foods across the development; this is a great opportunity for residents to make a positive mark on their new community.

The fun day will run from 11am to 2pm and there will be performances throughout the event. As before, it will be located at The Temporary Green, Ringsfield Lane, Charlton Hayes BS34 5AQ.

Charlton Hayes Autumn Fun Day

Posted on Friday 17th October 2014 at 11:38 am by SH (Editor)

Charlton Hayes Autumn Fun Day on Saturday 18th October 2014.

Residents of Charlton Hayes are invited to a community BBQ and fun day on Saturday (18th October), organised by the community development worker and resident volunteers.

The fun day, which runs from 12pm to 2.30pm, will be a celebration of autumn and will also give residents the opportunity to learn about safety on a building site (construction industry mascot Ivor Goodsite will be in attendance to run quizzes and offer prizes).

The event will take place on The Temporary Green in the Long Leaze part of the development (off Wood Street). Thankfully, there is now access from the David Wilson, Barratt and Bellway parts of the development via Chessel Drive, so residents from those areas can walk to the green!

There will be loads of fun stuff for all the family, such as an assault course, bouncy castle, graffiti workshop, face painting and juggling circus fun, as well as feedback on the recent Charlton Hayes community consultation and information about the upcoming residents’ forum.

The event will also offer residents the chance to meet their local police officers and find out about setting up a neighbourhood watch.

There will also be information about healthy living and the new Dreamscheme project.

And don’t forget the free BBQ with great food – the event will be weather proof under a huge marquee, so it will be going ahead whatever the weather.

Winsome Barrett-Muir, community development worker, said:

“Charlton Hayes is growing rapidly and we’re almost up 700 occupied homes. This event has been organised in response to residents’ feedback in the recent consultation. It’s an opportunity for all residents to get together, and what better way than around a BBQ? On a more serious note, we want to prevent accidents happening on the development while more houses are being built and so we would like everyone to meet Ivor Goodsite!”
