North Tyneside extracare scheme has green credentials

Posted on July 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

A new extracare housing development for older people in North Tyneside has reached a key milestone in its development, as the highest point of the structure – the final chimney – has been completed.

Work started on the scheme in Linskill Park in January and despite some challenging weather conditions, contractor Frank Haslam Milan (FHM) North East is still on schedule.

North Tyneside Mayor Linda Arkley, who carried out the ‘topping out’ ceremony, said the Linskill Park scheme was one of two schemes being developed in the borough and would provide a housing option for older people with a range of needs.

Linskill Park will include an on-site restaurant and hairdressing salon that will also be open to the wider community.

Each of the 63 two-bedroom apartments will be self contained with its own front door, fitted kitchen, walk-in shower and central heating. The scheme will provide a court manager and a care and support service will be available through the day and night.
