Re­tire­ment work starts

Macclesfield Express - - BEFORE THE BENCH -

WORK has started on a new re­tire­ment devel­op­ment along­side the canal.

De­vel­oper Adling­ton has be­gun work on its £13m devel­op­ment of 64 one, two and three-bed­room apart­ments for the over 60s on Bux­ton Road in Mac­cles­field.

The Bridges is on the banks of the Mac­cles­field Canal and is due to open in 2019.

Coun Bev­er­ley Doo­ley, mayor of Mac­cles­field, said: “It’s fan­tas­tic to see a devel­op­ment like this in Mac­cles­field and I do hope it will pro­vide a great ex­pe­ri­ence for the many peo­ple and their fam­i­lies that can ben­e­fit from in­de­pen­dent liv­ing like this.

“Mac­cles­field has a won­der­ful com­mu­nity and I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to see­ing The Bridges be­come a new ad­di­tion to it.”

The apart­ments al­low older peo­ple to live in­de­pen­dently but there will be 24-hour on site care, as well as spa and restau­rant, a hair­dress­ing sa­lon, lounge area and ac­tiv­i­ties and crafts room.

Claire Reede, sales and mar­ket­ing man­ager, said: “We’re thrilled that work has be­gan on our new site in a beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tion over­look­ing Mac­cles­field Canal and we’re very ex­cited to see it progress over the com­ing months.”
