Hampshire County Council is asking Petersfield residents what they think of proposals to redevelop the site of the former older people’s home, Bulmer House, into modern, high-specification accommodation for over-55s from the area.

The scheme will comprise 56 supported affordable one- and two-bedroom flats, and is being developed by housing provider Housing 21, working with East Hampshire District Council.

It will also include facilities the local community can use such as a bistro restaurant, coffee shop, as well as communal areas, lounges, activity rooms and landscaped gardens.

It’s design will ensure the building fits into the local landscape, with inspiration coming from Petersfield buildings, with particular attention paid to its green credentials, and protection for the local environment.

County council member Liz Fairhurst said: “Delivering affordable housing for older people is a key council priority and our proposed development in Petersfield is one of five new schemes currently under way.

“Extra Care provides a secure place to live with your own front door, but with the added reassurance of knowing care is available around the clock should you need it.

“This promises to be a fantastic facility for older people in Petersfield and I urge residents to let us know what they think of our plans.”

If planning permission is granted, it is expected the Petersfield development will be completed by the winter of 2022.

Those interested in taking a virtual tour of the development exhibition and giving their views, should visit the website at www.bulmerhouse.

The consultation closes midnight, Tuesday, August 4.
