Construction of new sheltered housing complex for Ramsey to begin mid-2018

Ramsey is to have a new sheltered housing complex, the Ramsey and Northern Districts Housing Committee (R&NDHC) has confirmed.

Construction of Mayfield in Queen’s Pier Road is set to begin in mid-2018 and comes after Ramsey Town Commissioners transferred land it owned there to the committee in 2016.

To complement the existing sheltered housing complexes in the town and provide an opportunity to re-develop the Cooil ny Marrey sheltered housing complex, the £6 million 37-unit will provide 27 one-bedroom and 10 two-bedroom apartments, located conveniently close to all local amenities.

Similar to the existing Kerroo Glass and Cooyrt Balleigh sheltered complexes, Mayfield will include communal facilities, passenger lifts, secure door access and a personal alarm system in each apartment.

Designed to maximise energy efficiency, the building will feature low-energy lighting, heat recovery extractor fans and underfloor heating.

Sheltered housing gives tenants of pensionable age an opportunity to live in an environment where they can retain their independence yet benefit from the security and access to support such complexes provide.

For further details and application forms contact Ramsey and Northern Districts Housing Committee, Ramsey Town Hall and Library, Parliament Square, Ramsey, IM8 1RT. 810100, housing@rtc.gov.im.
