The Consultation

Our Proposal

We are currently exploring an option to develop part of the land at Dairy Farm, to the west of Saxons Way, Halesworth and are in the early stages of working up proposals for the site’s redevelopment to provide new, specialist retirement accommodation, together with landscaping, indoor communal facilities and on-site car parking.

At McCarthy Stone, we always want to give back to the local community. As part of our proposals for the site, we will transfer a parcel of land at the north of the site to Halesworth Town Council to be allocated for community use.

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

  • A high-quality scheme featuring 43 Retirement Living apartments, comprising 26 one-bedroom and 17 two-bedroom units, as well as 10 bungalows, comprised of 4 one-bedroom and 6 two-bedroom units. All available for private sale, part-rent, part-buy and rental options
  • Communal facilities within the apartment building including a residents’ lounge, guest suite, internal refuse store, and mobility scooter storage with charging points
  • Transfer of land at the north of the site to Halesworth Town Council, to be used as a community asset
  • 24-hour emergency-call service
  • Provision of 50 on-site car parking spaces, including provision of disabled spaces
  • Low levels of traffic generation and car ownership given the sustainable location of the site
  • Ideal location in Halesworth, a short walk from local shops, services and public transport connections
  • High-quality, professionally landscaped gardens around the site, improving the site boundaries with new shrub and tree planting as well as the retention of most existing trees on site
  • 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 and bungalows.

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

We have carefully considered our design for the site, to breathe life into a currently vacant, but allocated development site. Our proposals present a valuable opportunity to bring forward a specialist retirement community in Halesworth, that provides genuine choice for older people so that they can continue to live locally in a home that meets their needs and aspirations in their later years.
