Kidbrooke Extra Care, 98 Weigall Road

Challenging some of the more institutional aspects of the Extra Care housing typology and embracing many of the principles set out in the HAPPI report – which calls for innovative and attractive retirement housing for older people in good locations – this scheme boasts a number of communal facilities and is sited immediately adjacent to a new park and a short walk from the community and transport ‘hub’, to be developed as part of a future phase.
