PLANS for retirement flats on Stone’s Crown Wharf go on show on Thursday.

Developer McCarthy and Stone is looking to build 33 apartments for older residents on the town centre land off Crown Street.

The development will also include car parking, landscaped gardens and the restoration of Wharfinger’s Cottage.

A public exhibition of the plans will be held at Christ Church Centre, Christ Church Way, from 3pm to 7pm.

McCarthy and Stone has said Crown Wharf is an ideal location for much-needed older people’s accommodation because it is within walking distance of local shops and services.

Darren Humphreys, regional managing director at McCarthy and Stone, said: “We have spent time carefully researching the architecture and character of the local area, and our proposals feature a traditional design. We’ve worked hard to make sure our proposal for the site feels like it belongs to Stone.

“We want to hear from the local community and our future home-owners before we submit a planning application. We will be displaying our plans at a public exhibition and our project team will be there to answer questions and listen to feedback on what we have done so far.

“The comments we receive will help us tailor our proposal into something people will want to see, enjoy and call home.”

Anyone unable to attend the exhibition can find out more about the plans by calling 0800 298 7040 or visiting www.mccarthyandstone-consultation.co.uk/stone.

Crown Wharf, owned by the Canal and River Trust, is currently rented to Stone Town Council for use as a car park.
