Green light for Edwalton  convenience store and retirement apartments

Planning permission has been granted for a new convenience store and 77 retirement apartments at Edwalton, near Nottingham.

Developer Charterpoint and not-for-profit housing provider Anchor have received reserved matters planning permission from Rushcliffe Borough Council for the scheme on the corner of Rose Way and Melton Road.

The 2.2 acre site will feature a single-storey convenience store, plus a three-storey retirement apartment scheme providing a range of one and two-bedroom apartments.

Charterpoint has now completed on the deal to sell part of the site to Anchor, England’s largest not-for-profit provider of housing and care for people in later life.

Anchor will carry forward and operate the retirement development, which will include a range of residents’ amenities and a courtyard garden, as well as 77 apartments.

Charterpoint will develop the remainder of the site for the convenience store and will announce further details in due course.

Charterpoint CEO Adrian Goose said: “We are very pleased to have received reserved matters planning consent for this key plot in Edwalton and to have subsequently sold part of the site to Anchor.

“The area around the site has grown considerably in recent years, with new housing, retail and commercial developments. Our plan for the site on the corner of Rose Way and Melton Road will bring a new convenience store to the neighbourhood.

“It will also provide much needed affordable retirement apartments for the community, operated by Anchor, which will help to free up larger family homes in Edwalton, West Bridgford and the wider area.”

Patrick Duffy, Anchor’s director of new business, said: “We are delighted to have acquired this site from Charterpoint. This is a key new development for us to work in partnership with Rushcliffe Borough Council to provide affordable homes for older people locally. We look forward to working with Charterpoint to deliver the wider scheme for the local community.”

The plans for the Edwalton site were designed by Brewster Bye Architects.
