Homes for our elderly

Posted on December 30 2014 at 11:02:02

Regarding the McCarthy & Stone plans for Alvechurch, the effort being made by the developers to get villagers “on side” is huge (which means the potential profits are also huge) including advertising, leaflet door drops, surveys in The Square, the open day and of course the offer to the cricket club of a new clubhouse in return for digging up the Green Belt in the centre of the village.

It would be better if the units were offered at a substantial discount to local elderly who could prove they had been living in the village for at least five years, thus stopping the mass inflow of wealthy pensioners from outside of our village who will swamp the already badly stretched facilities at our local surgery.
