Swallowtail Place – name for new scheme in East Norfolk unveiled
Progress is continuing at a new ‘extra care’ scheme in Acle, which has been officially named Swallowtail Place, following a local schools’ competition.
The new 58-flat facility – which is designed to enable elderly residents to live independently in their own homes, with the support of NorseCare – is due to open in Autumn 2022, and is being delivered by Saffron Housing in partnership with Norfolk County Council.
Comprising of a combination of one and two-bedroom self-contained flats, the complex will also host a range of communal spaces and on-site facilities, including a café and hair salon.
And with the availability of on-site care and support 24 hours a day, tenants will have peace of mind that they will be well looked after by the NorseCare team.
To celebrate works being underway on site, a structural ‘steel signing’ event was held last week, which was attended by NorseCare Chief Operating Officer, Martin Rix.
“NorseCare is extremely proud to be working with all the partners for this stunning scheme and look forward to creating a first class and vibrant care facility for all of the tenants with strong links to the Acle community,” Martin said.
