Thursday 9th March marked the official opening of Sunnylands Grove, providing 12 new homes for people over the age of 55.

The sheltered development at Sunnylands Grove, was officially opened by the Chair of Choice, Hazel Bell and Ian Snowden, Director of Housing Policy and Performance at the Department for Communities. Our own Harry Rolston, who was architect on the scheme, also attended the opening with Development Officer Jayne McFaul.

The apartments will enable older people to live independently and privately in their own dwelling within a safe, friendly and supportive environment.

Hazel Bell Chair of Choice said:

“Sheltered housing is an excellent option for older people who want to live independently in their own homes but remain closely connected to their community. These new high quality apartments will make a real difference to the lives of residents and bolsters the number of Choice homes in the Carrickfergus area.

“Sunnylands Grove is the latest completion in a busy new build programme that is actively planning and constructing much needed new homes across Northern Ireland. Today marks another milestone in our ambitious plans to support positive change across the region and deliver more high quality homes.”

Ian Snowden, Director at the Department for Communities said:

“One of the aims of the Department for Communities is to provide good quality, affordable housing for everyone in housing need and this development at Sunnylands Grove is a fine example of what we are trying to achieve. These are modern, energy efficient homes providing a contemporary living environment for the older population of Carrickfergus with easy access to the town’s facilities.”

The Sunnylands Grove scheme was designed by Rolston Architects and construction work was completed by O’Hanlon and Farrell.
