The recently approved development application in Minto is for a Seniors Living Village that includes a Residential Aged Care facility and Residential Living units. Located at the corner of Sark Ave and Pembroke Road, Minto, the development has been designed by award winning Architects Group GSA, offering a full ‘aging in place’ village to the local community.
The development will consist of ten three and four storey buildings which includes a 100-Bed Residential Aged Care facility and 345 one and two-bedroom Residential Living units, with ample parking for residents. The site will also include a large community centre, a café, extensive landscaping with a kids play area, pet friendly facilities, a variety of internal and external communal spaces for all residents, and a range of outdoor amenities to promote health and social interaction.
Anglicare is incorporating affordable housing for people over the age of 55 as part of this large-scale Seniors Living development.
“Anglicare has provided affordable accommodation for people in financial need for decades. This new project builds on that long history of care for those who are marginalised and vulnerable,” says Bill Farrand, Anglicare’s Chief Operating Officer for Community.
“Due to the substantial size and growth of Minto and increases in the cost of housing in Sydney, the number of people in the area in need of affordable rental accommodation options has increased substantially over the last 10 years,” says Mr Farrand.
“There are over 1,800 individuals aged over 55 living in the Campbelltown LGA who have an individual weekly income of less than $500 per week. Over 25% of these individuals are earning less than $300 per week. Most likely they need affordable housing.
“Anglicare’s development at Minto will seek to provide high quality affordable housing as well as support services for residents. We also want to create an enabling and secure environment where residents can foster meaningful connections with the wider community,” says Mr Farrand.
Anglicare has been delivering services within the greater local area for many years and the significant investment of this development demonstrates Anglicare’s long-term commitment to supporting and enriching the local community.
