An extra care facility with 70 apartments for elderly residents could be built on the outskirts of Filey.
Not-for-profit housing provider Housing & Care 21 has submitted an application to Scarborough Council to build the development in Scarborough Road.
The site, formerly known as Filey Fields Farm, would be home to 38 one-bedroom apartments and 32 two-bedroom apartments under the plans, with potential residents able to choose whether to rent or enter into a shared ownership agreement.
In its submission to the council Housing & Care 21 states: “Living independently, residents can take comfort from the proximity of extra care staff and the inherent security of the building.
“Residents will benefit from the public facilities and the ad-hoc care available, including the subscription-based emergency call system 24/7.
“The layout also ensures that important landscaping features are provided, including footpaths with seating at regular intervals.
“Careful siting of trees, bushes and shrubs set a particular tone for the whole development, not only helping to screen and frame views but also providing a strong visual cue from Scarborough Road and the public realm beyond.”
The organisation adds that rent levels for properties to be rented/shared ownership will be set by Scarborough Council in conjunction with Housing & Care 21.
As such, all the properties will be considered to be affordable housing.
The plans are now out to consultation.
