Retirement homes break ground in Ayrshire
Lawrence McPherson Associates in partnership with East Ayrshire Council have begun building work on a new £2.7m amenity housing complex at Cessnock Gardens in Hurlford, Ayrshire.  

The development will feature 26 secure retirement homes built around a courtyard garden area.   These will include single and two bedroom single storey houses and four wheelchair standard properties. The first residents are expected to move in to their new homes in summer 2009.

This is the first major project Lawrence McPherson Associates has undertaken for Shire Housing Association under a new framework agreement, which will see the company help roll-out Shire’s new build programme in East Ayrshire over the next four years.

Stephen McGhee, Partner with Lawrence McPherson Associates, said: “We are delighted to be on site and see work start on this project. It has taken months of work by all parties to secure a viable funding package to get the project to site.”

He added: “This is an interesting project as the complex is aimed at older people who are not ready for sheltered housing but want to feel they are living in a safe and secure environment.”
