MHA’s flagship retirement living scheme at Pickering in North Yorkshire has taken a step closer to completion with the keys to the first few properties being handed over from the developer.

Sixteen bungalows are now ready and waiting for the first residents to move in to Mickle Hill at the start of January.

Set on an 11-acre site amidst landscaped gardens, Mickle Hill is a state-of-the-art village-style development exclusively for people aged 60 and above. It will have 168 bungalows and apartments built around a host of social and leisure facilities, including a café bistro, gym and library.

It is being developed by national older person’s charity MHA, which provides services for 16,000 people, along with development partner Rangeford Holdings.

Residents living at Mickle Hill will also have the reassurance of a highly trained MHA staff team on hand 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, offering total peace of mind for them and their families.

MHA’s Development Director Karl Hallows said: “We are delighted to have taken possession of the first completed bungalows at Mickle Hill. I know from talking with them that the first residents are very much looking forward to moving in in the New Year.”

David Morley, Construction Manager with Termrim Construction, added: “It has been great seeing the site at Pickering be transformed by the new properties we are building there and we look forward to working alongside the new residents who will be moving in shortly.”

In addition to the keys being handed over, the large crane which has dominated the skyline as it helps construction of the main building containing apartments and the communal facilities, has been taken down.

On Thursday 30 September 2021, MHA’s management of Mickle Hill Retirement Living scheme in Pickering was transferred to Rangeford Villages.
