New over‐55s Nottinghamshire apartment scheme gets off the ground

Work is progressing on our brand‐new, Nottinghamshire‐based apartment scheme for older people which will be managed by Jigsaw Homes Midlands with funding from Homes England.

Set to complete in early 2022, Stockinger House in Burton Joyce will comprise a mix of high‐quality one and two‐bedroom apartments designed for older people. It has been designed to provide residents with an independent living environment with capacity for some ‘extra care’ accommodation, including assisted bathrooms, guest suites, and an on‐call social alarm .

Work started before Christmas 2020 by contractor J Tomlinson and included demolition of Lendrum Court, a former sheltered housing complex that will be replaced by the new, purpose‐built development.

As part of this exciting design and build project, there will also be landscaping works, including a car parking area and electric vehicle charging.

The development is situated just off Lambley Lane in Burton Joyce, and forms part of Jigsaw’s long‐ term commitment to providing much‐needed affordable homes.

Tony Shenton, managing director at J Tomlinson commented: “We’re pleased to be working in partnership with Jigsaw Homes Midlands to create much‐needed accommodation for over‐55s in Nottinghamshire. Masonry and pre-cast flooring works are ongoing, with roofing works due to commence next month, and we will continue to work closely with our client and the wider project team to ensure that the completed development is fit for purpose and aligns with Jigsaw Group’s vision.”

Karen Sands, Head of Independent Living at Jigsaw Homes Midlands said: “These new apartments will offer a modern, light, spacious and safe environment that meets the expectations of local older people . We are really pleased to see this development progress and look forward to welcoming our new residents in February 2022.”
