Plans to build 35 retirement living apartments on a key commercial site in the heart of one of Suffolk's most historic villages are to be exhibited to the public from today.
Leading developer and manager of retirement communities, McCarthy Stone is showcasing its proposals to redevelop the Lavenham Press site on Water Street, into high-quality retirement apartments, following the already planned relocation of the Lavenham Press.
The developers' proposal aims to deliver a sensitively designed development of 35 retirement apartments to "help meet local need for this type of accommodation."
The apartments will be situated near local shops and services with on-site parking and landscaped gardens.
The local community is being encouraged to find out more about the development and is being asked to provide feedback at a virtual public exhibition which will be available from today, Tuesday, May 4.
The virtual exhibition will also include a live chat session on Tuesday, May 11 between 1pm and 5pm, when people will be able to speak directly with a member of the project team
