Planning permission has been granted for a new development of 46 retirement apartments in Falmouth.

McCarthy & Stone has been given the go-ahead to build the one and two bedroom privately owned retirement properties for those aged 60 and above on Bar Road.

Jacqui Meenan, sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone, comments: “Everything we do is built around a belief that later life can be rich, rewarding and fulfilling, which is why we’re thrilled to be bringing a new offering to the town. As specialists in Retirement Living, we understand what our customers want; a low maintenance property offering independence and security, to help get the most out of later life.”

 Facilities will include a shared lounge, guest suite, laundry room and a lift. A dedicated house manager will ensure the smooth running of the development and a security entrance system plus 24-hour emergency call points provide peace of mind for both homeowners and their families. All properties will be low maintenance and energy efficient.
