Over 55s in Doncaster now have more housing options with the launch of Patent House and Patent Walk.

The brand-new Retirement Living development hosted an opening event at Minden Court, with interest being shown by prospective residents.
The scheme will provide 12 one- and two-bedroom apartments and eight two-bedroom bungalows for social rent to residents over the age of 55.

The new development in Bentley, Doncaster, is being delivered by Housing 21, a national leading provider of Retirement Living and Extra Care, in partnership with Modular AR Limited and Doncaster Council.

Supported by a £1.3 million grant from Homes England, Patent House and Patent Walk is currently being built with work scheduled to complete in February 2023, the show home opening is scheduled for January 2023.

The scheme is being built to ensure that residents have energy efficient homes. The fabric of the building will have improved U-values, high levels of air tightness, mechanical ventilation with heat recovery and hot water provided by air source heat pumps.

Deborah Hope, Head of Development at Housing 21, said:
“This scheme is timely for many reasons. The cost-of-living crisis and the focus on net zero means the ability to deliver these modular constructed homes for the benefit of older people in Doncaster is in keeping with our ethos, of serving people of modest means with the best quality that is available as well as the bigger national agenda.”

This scheme is perfectly located eight miles north of Doncaster, with local amenities nearby.
All apartments and bungalows have been designed to provide fully accessible facilities for both residents and visitors, including an onsite manager and a buggy store. Other key facilities include a spacious residents’ lounge and communal gardens.

Cabinet member for Housing and Business, Cllr Glyn Jones, added: “Progress on this new affordable housing development has really kicked on since we were last here and it’s great to see the new homes nearing completion. The crucial, next step is getting residents in their new homes and settled.” 

“As the cost-of-living crisis takes effect, it’s fantastic to know that these homes are affordable and energy efficient. The fact that 20 new homes have been constructed off site also means that we are protecting and enhancing the natural environment through sustainable development.”
