Milford House Retirement Village

We were engaged by leading Community Care provider, Homecare NI to provide assistance in executing a community and political consultation exercise for a proposed retirement village and care home within the grounds of Manor House, Milford Co Armagh. The proposed Retirement Village will be the first of its kind in Northern Ireland and will provide a full range of care levels for residents.

Issues Encountered

  • Proposed site located outside the established settlement limit for Milford
  • Concerns from Department over size and scale of proposed development
  • Community sensitivities in relation to the restoration of listed building Manor House

Our Involvement

We were asked to engage and consult with local community and political representatives to obtain support for the planning application and expedite it through the planning system.

Individual meetings with key community group representatives and local politicians at all levels were carried out culminating in a presentation to Armagh District Council where the Council’s corporate support for the project was obtained.
