Manchester-based property consultancy Millson Associates has bolstered its residential portfolio this month, achieving planning consent for one client and being appointed on a number of other developments.
The 23-strong team has achieved crucial planning consent and commenced work on site for its longstanding client – the Nottinghamshire-based housing association Gedling Homes – helping them secure the commission to redevelop a 1980s sheltered housing block into modern extra care dwellings for elderly residents.
The development, situated in Mapperley, Nottinghamshire, will also be part demolished to make way for new outdoor space – a popular decision amongst residents and one that comes following Millson’s intensive consultation programme. Director Philip Millson said: “We have long worked with Gedling Homes on developments with elderly clientele and the process of proper engagement is imperative in achieving a positive planning outcome. I’m delighted that this scheme is underway and that this lovely group of residents are getting the new, spacious homes they need.”
Lynn Clayton, Managing Director at Gedling Homes added: This scheme will enable older people to enjoy a healthier, active and more independent lifestyle in a modern alternative to the traditional care home. It will also offer Extra Care apartments, the first Extra Care offering in the Gedling borough.”
Further residential work for Millson Associates this month includes work for Seddon Homes and Bolton-based Forrest Ltd.
Concluded Philip Millson: “It has been a fruitful period in one of our core sectors. We’ve delivered work for Gedling, Seddon and Forest for a number of years and I’m delighted that those relationships have again be extended with this series of projects.”
Millson Associates has offices in Greater Manchester and London and employs 23 members of staff including interior designers, architects and chartered surveyors and project managers.
