Extra Care - Jubilee Gardens
In order to progress the Jubilee Gardens Extra Care development, it is necessary to implement some temporary traffic management arrangements on West Paddock. From Monday 13 November, to facilitate drainage connection works for the development, there will be traffic management controls in the vicinity of Jubilee Court. Work is expected to last for two weeks.
A new state-of-the-art Extra Care facility is being developed in South Ribble. The scheme has been named Jubilee Gardens with reference to the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in 2022.
Jubilee Gardens is a £20.5 million investment for South Ribble to provide 75 apartments with supported living facilities including a cafe, hair salon and support services.
By introducing the extra care provision, this will ensure residents gain access a high-quality housing which allows them to maintain their independence whilst at the same time ensuring access to vital support.
What to expect on site
Caddick Construction Ltd is the company we have procured to deliver the works. The project is registered under the Considerate Constructors Scheme.
The initial works are set to be minimal, with ground investigations taking place first, with the site hoardings to be erected around 14 August.
Access to all public footpaths will be maintained during the works.
Working hours are set to be 7.30am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday. No weekend work is currently planned.
The works will consist of a new build three-storey apartment block, constructed using traditional methods, along with associated communal living space, cafe bistro, and a small retail unit.
A development that gives back - social value
We are dedicated to ensuring that all developments that we undertake give back to the local community.
Right from our tendering for developers to work with us, straight through the life of the project, we want to make sure our developments are not just brick and mortar and that they are able to leave a lasting legacy on our communities.
Throughout construction, Caddick Construction has pledged a £6.6m social value investment to create a lasting legacy through a host of initiatives to support the neighbouring community. These include a series of work placements, employment opportunities and vocational training for local people.
The business has also made a pledge to localise its supply chain spend to the Central Lancashire area, with a further commitment to spend £4m with local subcontractors and £250k with local businesses, all of which is expected to support 70 jobs.
Ensuring the building work supports local good causes, Caddick has also dedicated hours of staff time to volunteering with local charities, and pledged to donate £5,000 in total to community projects.
