Updates on Lowfield Green development site

Construction work will start at Lowfield Green in autumn 2019 to will deliver a mix of homes, for people of all ages, in a community where residents can thrive. There will be 2, 3, and 4 bedroom family houses, 2 bedroom bungalows, and apartments for people over 55 years old who want more manageable homes.

Work is underway to procure a care home provider for the Lowfield Green site, to meet the needs of older residents, as part of our older person’s accommodation programme.
