Lovell Later Living

Working in partnership to deliver Later Living developments across the UK


Places for People Living Plus is to extend its affordable living portfolio into New Milton with the development of 50 brand-new extra care homes for people over 55 at Wooldridge View.

All key stakeholders celebrated the start of the development on Monday 20 June 2022 with a traditional ‘turf cutting’ ceremony – which is held to mark the formal start of building works. Attendees included Councillors Liz Fairhurst and Fran Carpenter from Hampshire County Council, Councillors Jill Cleary and John Ward from New Forest District Council and Councillor Keith Craze as Mayor of New Milton Town Council.

Places for People Living Plus is working in partnership with Lovell Later Living, Hampshire County Council, New Forest District Council and Morgan Sindall Construction to develop this new community, which will deliver 50 one and two bedroom affordable-rent apartments by the end of 2023. Wooldridge View will offer its residents 24-hour on-site care commissioned by Hampshire County Council, including both planned and emergency care. In addition to the apartments, this community will offer residents a variety of health and wellbeing facilities.
