Work has begun on a long-awaited retirement complex in Nailsea town centre.

Churchill Retirement Living, in Christ Church Close, will comprise 30 one and two-bedroom apartments specially designed for people over 60.

The apartments will include a video-entry system, lifts to all floors, a 24-hour care and support system and communal facilities including an owners’ lounge, guest suite and landscaped gardens.

Martin Young, regional managing director at Churchill Retirement Living South West, said: “With more than 11.1 million people in the UK aged 65 or over, we believe better provision of housing for older people and the need to ensure there are sufficient, good quality retirement living options to meet the needs of an ageing population is an absolute priority.

“Our properties offer security, peace of mind and independent living, along with community and support.

“Being in a manageable home with no maintenance can offer a new lease of life for people – ensuring they are close to amenities, and surrounded by a new community.

“We are delighted to be bringing a new development to Nailsea and have already seen lots of interest from over 60s keen to find out more about the benefits of retirement living.”

The retirement complex is being built on the site of Sycamore House which has been vacant since 2008.
