Extra care

18/P/2170/RM | Reserved matters of appearance, landscaping, layout and scale for the erection of a building for extra care housing (60no. self contained flats and supporting facilities)


Quattro Design Architects have been engaged by Housing & Care 21 to design the Extra Care housing within the Bloor 2 development.

The proposal is for 60 apartments and supporting facilities together with external landscaping and parking areas. The main aim of the new Extra Care Housing is to provide older people and people with care needs, with their own self-contained apartment.

The Extra Care building will be 3-story generally but with steps down to 2 stories in key locations so that it is more in keeping with the surrounding housing.

Housing & Care 21 is a leading national provider of retirement housing and care services for older people, mainly those aged 65 and above. They are a not-for-profit organisation and operate in over 150 local authority areas – managing around 19,000 Retirement and Extra Care apartments and providing over 80,000 hours of care each week to more than 31,000 people.
