Construction work to begin at former Homewood site in Royal Leamington Spa
New units will be built at the existing Audley Binswood
Audley Retirement has secured planning permission to begin work on the former site of residential care facility Homewood in Leamington Spa.
The site, which is within walking distance from the town centre and adjacent to Audley’s existing village, Audley Binswood; will be converted into additional accommodation for over-55s.
The site will provide an additional 24 luxury apartments and two cottages to the 89 properties already at Audley Binswood. It will also be Audley’s first satellite site.
Audley Binswood is centred around Binswood Hall, a magnificent Grade II listed Victorian Gothic mansion, which houses the Audley Club, offering luxury facilities including a library, swimming pool, and restaurant which are open to both owners and the local community.
Nick Sanderson, chief executive of Audley, said: “Since welcoming its first owners back in 2013, Audley Binswood has become a key part of the local area, and we are looking forward to growing the village further with the addition of extra properties.
“Our exemplary record in securing planning permission comes from our commitment to working closely with the local community and stakeholders, and we intend to continue with this approach as construction begins.
“The growth and continued success of sites such as Binswood is a reflection of the increasing demand for high-quality retirement living with care provision, in part due to an ageing UK population seeking aspirational property to downsize to.”
