Key dates for your diary
Construction start date, sales release and first occupation are still to be confirmed.
Sitting in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds, Gloucester is home to the country-s most inland port and is a peaceful and pretty place to call home. Having been a settlement since Roman times, the area boasts a rich history and benefits from a range of attractions, both within the city itself, and in the stunning rural landscapes that surround it.
The proposed McCarthy & Stone development will sit right at the centre of one of the city-s most popular areas. The Quays area of Gloucester is a particular favourite for visitors and for locals, offering an eclectic mix of museums, waterside eateries, bars and shops, including a large Designer Outlet shop. The Quay-s centre includes a pharmacy and local dentist as well as a wealth of independent and national retailers.
For a sense of local history pay a visit to the 11th century Cathedral, resting place of King Edward II and now a popular location for film and television shoots including Harry Potter, Wolf Hall and Doctor Who. History lovers will also enjoy a visit to the viewing chamber in Eastgate Street, where a series of exhibits shed light on the long history of the town.
Just opposite the development is a conveniently placed Sainsbury-s superstore providing all of the essentials for day-to-day life, as well as a pharmacy and men-s and women-s clothing lines. There is also an on-site caf?? selling tea and coffee, as well as cakes and snacks.
