24 new retirement flats with communal facilities for the ‘active elderly’ are currently being constructed in Brigg, replacing the existing sheltered accommodation facilities, also named Tennyson Close.
Tennyson Close in Brigg will soon be home to a brand new facility for active retired people of 55+, with construction underway for 24 self-contained retirement apartments. The development will be a three-storey high-spec complex, and will feature communal facilities such as a mobility scooter storage. It also flexes its eco-credentials with a facility for rainwater harvesting on the roof. PCC Construction Services have been called in to provide civil and structural design and support along the way, including drainage, lintel and foundation design.
The development replaces the existing Tennyson Close sheltered accommodation block, which opened in 1978 and comprised of 20 one-bedroom studio apartments, 4 one-bedroom flats and four one-bedroom bungalows. Developers are now suggesting a name change to the rather poetic Tennyson Gardens.
