Next phase of Mansfield Extra Care development begins
Date: June 26, 2015 10:11
Community regeneration specialist Keepmoat celebrated the start on site of the next phase at Poppy Fields (formerly Brownlow Road) Extra Care development, in partnership with Mansfield District Council.
The £2 million second phase was awarded to Keepmoat following the success of the £8.4 million first phase. The build will see a further twenty homes built on the site of the Extra Care facility for over 55s, which is due for completion in May 2016.
Keepmoat and Mansfield District Council marked the second phase officially commencing work with a visit from the Executive Mayor of Mansfield, Kate Allsop, along with the Ward Councillor, Ian Sheppard, for a tour around site to see phase two.
The Poppy Fields scheme, a mix of bungalows, houses and apartments, will enable people over the age of 55, who may have additional care needs, to live as independently as possible with care staff on site 24 hours a day.
