The Consultation

Our Proposals

We have recently acquired an interest in land adjacent to Shot Works and are in the early stages of working up proposals for the site’s redevelopment. We would like to provide new, specialist retirement apartments complemented by indoor communal facilities, high-quality outdoor space and on-site car parking.

Our plans for a new, vibrant retirement community, providing choice for older people in the local area comprise:

  • A high-quality scheme featuring around 56 Retirement Living apartments
  • Communal facilities within the apartment building including a residents’ lounge, guest suite, internal refuse store, and mobility scooter storage with charging points
  • 24-hour emergency-call service
  • Provision of on-site car parking spaces, including disabled bays, for homeowners, staff and visitors
  • Low levels of traffic generation and car ownership given the sustainable location of the site
  • Ideal location in Chester, a short walk from local shops, city centre amenities and public transport connections
  • High-quality, professionally landscaped grounds around the site, improving the site boundaries with new planting.
  • Support for the local economy through increased local spending
  • Release of family-sized housing in the area back onto local markets as residents downsize to our apartments.
  • Regeneration of a previously developed brownfield site.

All estate management is provided in-house by McCarthy Stone.

Our proposal for land adjacent to Shot Works presents a valuable opportunity to bring forward a specialist retirement community in Chester, meeting a local need for this type of accommodation whilst releasing family-sized homes back onto the local market.
