Homes England injects £40m to support new MMC prefabrication built retirement living homes.
The UK’s government agency Homes England has injected £40m funding to support the delivery of new MMC (modern methods of construction) prefabrication built retirement living homes, which will accelerate the construction of 255 homes in Audley Group’s Mayfield Villages portfolio
The prefabricated built properties in Mayfield Villages will include extensive health, wellbeing, care and leisure facilities. Property owners and members of the local area will also benefit from access to the Care Quality Commission (CQC) rated Mayfield Care.
Peter Denton, chief executive at Homes England, said: “First and foremost, this will enable hundreds of later life customers to enjoy high-quality, independent living accommodation for years to come.
“The area will benefit from enhanced care provision and family homes will be freed up for the next generation.
“Our loan directly addresses market funding challenges due to the pandemic and highlights our commitment to ensuring diverse communities.”
Nick Sanderson, CEO of the Audley Group, added: “The transaction with Homes England is an important milestone for the retirement living sector. A coming of age.
“Government backing underlines the importance placed on increasing provision in the retirement living sector and developing more innovative housing solutions.
“Our aspiration to transform retirement is shared with both Homes England and BlackRock Real Assets and this will be the focus as we look to the future. (MMC prefabrication)”
