GROUND has officially been broken on the new retirement home development on the former North Leamington School site.
Audley Binswood Hall will comprise 90 apartments for people aged over 55 plus a host of facilities for residents and the wider public, including a gym swimming pool, restaurant and library. The centre-piece of the development will be the restored Victorian gothic hall at the site.
Nick Sanderson, chief executive of Audley Retirement, said the ground-breaking ceremony, held on Tuesday July 3, marked the first step in “renovating and restoring the magnificent building and opening the doors to a new community.”
He added: “We are hugely excited to get this new development under way and are encouraged by the warm reception from the local community who hold Binswood Hall very dear.
“We are determined to provide high quality, luxury living for those in later life, and enable them to live a happier, healthier and independent retirement.”
The ceremony was attended by Mr Sanderson plus Richard Ashworth, president of the Leamington Society and Stephen Beechey, group investment director for scheme developers Wates.
