How the Stockport scheme should look

The housebuilder will construct 87 independent living apartments and 17 two-bed extra care bungalows as part of the extra care development. It will also create communal spaces, guest accommodation and landscaped gardens. 

Brewster Bye Architects will design the scheme for Countryside, which was taken over by Vistry last year. 

Ian Hilliker, managing director of Countryside Partnerships Merseyside and Cheshire West, said: “We have extensive experience delivering extra care developments around the UK, and we’re very pleased to be working with Anchor.”

Lisa Walters, head of commissioning at Anchor, said: “Starting construction at this exciting new development is a key step in achieving Anchor’s goals, to create more homes where people can love living in later life.”
