Skegness The final Brick

The LACE Housing complex on Scarbrough Avenue comprises 17 purpose-built retirement apartments and a holiday home for older people with support needs.

The final brick was laid on Monday 24th April by LACE Housing’s Chief Executive Nick Chambers following a 56-week construction schedule by Lindum Construction.

The specialist facility, which is yet to be officially named, was funded by East Lindsey District Council, the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership, the Homes and Communities Agency and the Herbert William Sollitt Memorial Trust.

Nick said: “Thanks to the support we have received from key partners we are delighted to see the new complex for over 55s becoming a reality. The accommodation has been specifically designed to meet the needs of older people and, when you take into consideration the excellent location close to the seafront and town centre, it will be a wonderful place to retire to.

“With the addition of communal facilities and features to support independent living, we eagerly await our first residents moving in later this summer.”

Simon Gregory, MD of Lindum Construction, added: “It is great to be working with LACE Housing and using our practical building knowledge to bring much-needed projects like this to fruition.

“This accommodation will go some way towards responding to the increasing need for quality, affordable housing for the rising ageing population and hopefully create a catalyst for future projects.”

 

An official opening ceremony is due to take place in September following the completion of the interior works and exterior landscaping.
