Project update

Here you can find the latest news on this project, with updates as they happen.

September 2018

We welcome the decision of South Staffordshire Council to grant approval for the new purpose-built accommodation at the Burgesses.

May 2018

A planning application to create purpose-built accommodation for older people in Kinver has been submitted. 

15 February 2018

Residents were the first to see new drawings by architects working on the project. Drawings will be submitted as part of the planning application for the sites but we felt that it was important that our residents had the opportunity to see and comment on the drawings first.

December 2017

Residents from Mill House and The Burgesses went on a road trip to our newest retirement living development, River View, in Penkridge. The residents were given an exclusive preview of the property before it opened to the public, so that they could get an idea of the standard of accommodation we are proposing to provide in Kinver.
