Local MP joins retirement developer at new site in Highcliffe

Local MP Sir Christopher Chope has visited Churchill Retirement Living’s highly-anticipated new Rothesay Lodge retirement development in Highcliffe.

Sir Chope visited the development on Stuart Road to meet with Churchill Retirement Living’s CEO Spencer McCarthy, before enjoying an exclusive tour of the new development.

Rothesay Lodge comprises 48 privately owned, self-contained apartments that are specially designed for the over 60s with features such as a video-entry system, lift to all floors, a 24 hour care and support system, and a Lodge Manager. Communal facilities include an Owners’ Lounge which owners use for socialising and events, communal landscaped gardens, and a Guest Suite for visiting family and friends.

Sir Christopher Chope MP said: “I am grateful to Churchill Retirement Living for enabling me to see the new development and to meet some of those involved in the construction and design as well, as members of the team who will be looking after new Owners when they move in.

"I was pleased to learn that many of those who will be moving in are from the immediate neighbourhood which shows that this development is helping to satisfy a local need. Highcliffe is a great place in which to live for people of all ages and the addition of more good quality homes is most welcome.”

Spencer McCarthy added:

We were delighted that Sir Chope was able to join us for a tour of our brand new Lodge. Churchill’s properties offer security, peace of mind and independent living for our Owners, along with community and support and have already attracted plenty of interest from retirees in the town. Being in a manageable home with low maintenance can offer a new lease of life for people – ensuring they are close to amenities, and surrounded by a new community. We are pleased to have brought this new development to Highcliffe and have already seen lots of interest from local over 60s keen to find out more about the benefits of retirement living.

All of the apartments at Rothesay Lodge have spacious rooms throughout and are an ideal combination of design and functionality. The fully fitted, stylish kitchens include a built in fridge and freezer, hob and an oven, which is located at an easy-reach height. All of the properties also benefit from illuminated light switches for added convenience.

Owners enjoy ultimate peace of mind from a fitted camera entry system for the highest level of security and a 24 hour emergency call system.
The Lodge is also just a short distance from public transport links, shops and all the local amenities on offer in Highcliffe.
