Rangeford Villages exchanged contracts to acquire West Sussex site for new integrated retirement community

03/01/2024 General


Rangeford Villages, the award-winning later living provider and operator, has announced that, following exchange of contracts, a hybrid planning application (ref: DM/23/2699) for the IRC and wider mixed-use community has been submitted by the promoter, Wellbeck and is currently being considered by Mid-Sussex District Council.

Rangeford intends to develop their section of the site, which is part of the existing Imberhorne Farm, subject to detailed planning consent, with a collection of circa 150 state-of-the-art 1-,2-, and 3- bedroom apartments and 2-bedroom bungalows.

In keeping with Rangeford’s full-service Integrated Retirement Community (IRC) model, the development will provide a focus on wellness and include a wealth of exceptional first-class amenities comprising a fully equipped gym and spa which includes a swimming pool, sauna, and steam room, as well as a restaurant, bar, coffee shop, and hair and beauty salon. There are also plans for extensive communal gardens with a village green, croquet lawn, boule court, allotments and more.

Doug Jones, Land and Planning Director of Rangeford Villages, continued: “We are delighted to have successfully secured yet another high-quality site. We look forward to working with the wider consultancy team to bring the exciting plans to life, and to introduce Rangeford’s highly coveted lifestyle-focused living to the over-60 community in and around East Grinstead and we urgently require similar opportunities.”

As with previous developments, Rangeford Villages has teamed up with Octopus Real Estate, part of Octopus Investments and a leading UK specialist real estate lender and investor, for the project. Once completed, it will be operated by Rangeford.

East Grinstead, which is conveniently situated 30 miles south of London, is well connected by rail and road with easy access to the M23, M25, and A22. Regular train services connect East Grinstead with London Victoria in just over an hour.
