Planning consent was approved on 12th September 2018 for the development of the 4 acre, Lyngford House site which Quantum acquired from NHS Property Services in early 2017.

The proposals cover the redevelopment of the whole site and include the conversion of the Grade II listed Lyngford House and the associated historic cottages (coach house and stables) into 36 extra care housing and 9 extra care apartments.

The development will provide much needed affordable housing for people over 55, designed for independent living in a safe and secure environment and include communal facilities with activity rooms, communal lounges, treatment and dining rooms. In addition, there will be communal and private gardens for residents.
