McCarthy and Stone said it is predicting a strong increase in the demand for retirement living in Bexhill and is seeking appropriate sites for the development of a new retirement community.

McCarthy and Stone is searching for land in Bexhill of between 0.5 to five acres, ideally with level access and in a prominent location close to the high street or to local amenities.

John Tonkiss, chief executive officer, said: “The Prime Minister is spot on in recognising that housebuilding will be central to the UK’s recovery effort, and more and better housing for older people is a critical part of the mix.

“High-quality and well-located retirement communities bring life back to high streets and help older people remain independent and secure in their own home, with companionship and assistance on hand if needed. I would urge landowners or those who are in a position to make a new site introduction to come forward at their earliest convenience and have a discussion with our land buying team. Generous commissions are available for the right site.”
