Proposed apartments with care

Land at Topsham Road, Exeter Consultation

Adlington Retirement Living designs, builds and operates retirement living communities with care. Our innovative, spacious apartments don’t just win over homeowners and their families: they also win the recognition of our industry peers.

We have built award-winning retirement communities in Otley, Portishead, Macclesfield, and Stockport, recognised at the National WhatHouse? Awards for “Best Retirement Development in the UK”. With over 1000 current homeowners we continue to develop new communities across the North West, Yorkshire, the Midlands and the South West.

The proposed development

The development consists of circa 69 apartments with care and will also include extensive communal facilities, high quality landscaped gardens and car parking.

Further information on the proposed development is available by clicking on the link to the Public Exhibition consultation boards below.

Key benefits of the development

  • Employment – Additional jobs created in Exeter  during construction and when operational
  • Economic – Additional spending in the area which will support local businesses and services
  • Release of family housing – Free up family housing in the market, which is often under-occupied
  • NHS and social care savings – Less risk of falls, reduced GP visits, hospital admissions and care home costs
  • Social – Promotes social interaction, peace of mind, stability, comfort and security which protects against isolation and loneliness
  • Sustainability – Through the provision of high quality landscaping and enhancements to biodiversity there will be a significant net gain for biodiversity on the site. The building will utilise sustainable construction and design techniques
