GOING UP: Plans for the apartments at Trinidad House

First published in News

A PROPOSAL to build a £7.2million development of extra care apartments has been approved in Poole.

Borough of Poole’s planning committee unanimously voted for Poole Housing Partnership’s application for 54 extra care flats with communal facilities at Trinidad House, Rossmore.

Trinidad Village will provide much-needed extra care housing, while aiming to become a focal point for the Rossmore community with a welcoming entrance and easily-accessible garden.

“Members of the planning committee unanimously approved this to provide much-needed extra care housing in Poole,” said Cllr Phil Eades, chairman of the planning committee.

Currently 107 apartments of sheltered housing will be added to by a three/four-storey building with approximately 54 new units to create an extra care housing community of around 144 flats in Rossmore Road.

Borough of Poole has committed £5.5m funding from its housing revenue account, boosted by a £1.7m Homes and Communities Agency government grant.

The plans include a central courtyard with seating areas, landscaped gardens and terraces providing a relaxing environment for residents to enjoy.

Residents will be able to use new state-of-the-art facilities including restaurant, spa and beauty salon.

It will now go out to tender. The council says it hopes that building work will start in September 2014.
