Proposed Senior Residential Development at Grove Farm, Abergavenny, NP7 9HE

  • A proposal for the demographic time bomb facing everyone. A proposal for the provision of care for the elderly in North Monmouthshire. We are all living longer and the informal networks that supported communities has erroded and no longer accessible.
  • An integrated care community for senior citizens amidst magnificent lakeside setting and rolling Usk valley countryside. A new approach to elderly care with stakeholder interest at the forefront determining the design outcome.
  • To include: extra care, affordable homes, retirement homes for over 55s and nursing care. A collective residential approach to care provision from local authority, housing groups and private providers.
  • HRH Princes Foundation for the Built Environment is working with partners in the public and private sectors to develop exemplar sites with integrated care at its core. Grove Farm has been identified by the Foundation and is considered suitable in terms of its location and demographic catchment for such a development.

The Project's Purpose

Grove Community Manorial Farm HouseCare Community at Grove Farm, Llanfoist: This is a proposal for an integrated Care Village on the site of Grove Farm, Llanfoist, Abergavenny. The desire for the old farm amidst the magnificent lakeside setting is to create a supportive community for the burgeoning senior population of North Monmouthshire.

Our thinking has its origins in a new approach to design amidst widespread demographic concerns for the provision of housing for an ageing population with increasing demands upon healthcare services. We would like to establish a wholly sympathetic environment, with security, comfort and support for retirees. We are proposing a partnership between,private, public and voluntary bodies in a collective approach to delivering 21st Centuary homes.To encompass; extra care, affordable retirement appartments,  and accomodation for the over 55's. To create a balanced community of people with various stages of retirement and health needs ,financially able and not so able. The onward interest of residents physical and mental wellbeing would be fundamental.

The manorial farmhouse has its origins in the 1400’s with all its out buildings and 40 acres functioning to the present day as a working farm. The soft rolling landscape of the Usk valley under the Brecon Beacons National Parkland, adjacent canal and golf course offer an ideal location for such a well designed visionary scheme.
