Scholars Place is the largest scheme to date for McCarthy & Stone North East, consisting of Priestley Court, a circa 3,940m² GIA Retirement Living scheme and Chesterton Court, a circa 5,850m² GIA Retirement Living Plus scheme. SGP’s plans for the spacious one and two bedroom apartments will redevelop a challenging, vacant brownfield site into a vibrant mixed use scheme that balances employment and residential uses.

SGP’s involvement began with the masterplanning of the 3.58 hectare site, owned by McCarthy & Stone and Spooner Industries, into six discrete and complementary uses, namely Retirement Living and Retirement Living Plus apartments, a 77 bedroom care home, office block, two extensions to Spooner Industries Ltd and a children’s nursery (later amended to an office), together with associated parking and landscaping.

SGP’s work continued after planning permission was granted in December 2016, taking the McCarthy & Stone Retirement Living and Retirement Living Plus projects from feasibility through to completion.
