Stafford Consultation

Proposed Apartments with Care

Former Brooklands School, Eccleshall Road, Stafford

Adlington is a developer specialising in providing apartments with care for older people working in partnership with MHA (Methodist Homes). The 24-hour on site care provision is crucial to the Adlington concept and we have partnered with MHA for this purpose. MHA is a charity providing care homes, housing and support services for older people throughout Britain. Established almost 70 years ago, MHA now delivers a range of services to over 15,000 individuals. All MHA services, delivered by over 4,000 dedicated staff and 5,000 committed volunteers, are assessed by the care sector’s regulator, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), meet their independent quality ratings and have been consistently rated good or excellent. The requirements from CQC inform the internal and external layouts and communal facilities.
The purpose of this consultation is to canvass your opinion on our initial proposals. A planning application will be submitted to Stafford Borough Council in due course and you will be able to comment at that time. However we welcome your views and comments now so that we might consider their inclusion in our proposals.


The Proposed Development

The proposed development includes one, two and three bedroom apartments and communal facilities including:

  • Restaurant and residents’ lounge
  • Hairdressers, activities room, assisted bathroom/spa room, guest suite
    and mobility scooter storage
  • Patios and landscaped gardens
  • 26 car parking spaces including 3 disabled spaces
  • 2 – 3 storeys over split level, providing in the region of 51 apartments
  • Appropriately designed gardens with habitat landscaping to act as a buffer
    between the building and neighbouring nature reserve.


Key benefits of the development

    • It creates an environment where preventative measures to reduce ill health and active ageing are promoted, creating an alternative to current residential care homes thus allowing older people the enjoyment of a more fulfilled life in their later years.
    • The scheme will employ up to 15-20 persons (Full-time equivalent)
    • The regeneration of this previously developed site
    • High quality design and materials appropriate for the site in this popular part of Stafford
    • Functional design and layout to meet residents needs
    • Wheelchair accessible (specifically designed) apartments with wet room
    • Represents one of the most efficient ways to deliver care and support
    • Meets some of the unmet needs for this type of accommodation with care
