The UK’s leading retirement housebuilder, McCarthy and Stone, has announced that construction will soon commence at its forthcoming site on Manor Park Road in Chislehurst.

The development will see it transformed into a collection of one and two bedroom Retirement Living Plus apartments, specifically designed for people aged 70 and over.

Ahead of the build programme starting, McCarthy and Stone is appealing to local people to enter its ‘What’s in a Name’ competition, and to suggest a name for the proposed scheme.

The winning entry will be granted the opportunity to attend the official opening of the development, as well as receiving a cheque for £150.

Georgina Akers, regional sales and marketing director for McCarthy and Stone South East, said: “We are excited to invite people from the local area to name our latest development in Chislehurst.

“We are looking for a name which will be relevant to the local community, and it can be anything from suggestions honouring local landmarks or scenery, to names that incorporate elements of the town’s rich history from years gone-by.

“Simply submit your ideas by March 9 to be considered for the prize, and to put your stamp on a little bit of future history in the town.”

To be in with a chance of naming McCarthy and Stone’s new development, and to win £150, send your name and contact details, along with your suggested development name and the reason for your chosen name, with the subject header ‘Chislehurst’, to

The competition is open to people of all ages from the local and surrounding areas, and the deadline for entries is Friday March 9.

McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living Plus developments offer homeowners the opportunity to downsize and maintain an active, independent lifestyle, surrounded by like-minded individuals.

The Chislehurst development will comprise a selection of one and two bedroom apartments, a stunning homeowners lounge, ideal for socialising with friends; beautifully landscaped gardens in which to relax; and a convenient guest suite should homeowners have friends or family to stay.

Homeowners will also feel secure in the knowledge that the Estate Management Team is on hand to provide any help or support should they need it.
