WORK on a new block of retirement flats is well under way with the first phase expected to be finished at the end of this year.
McCarthy & Stone is building 45 one and two-bedroom flats in Gosport.
The development, off Mumby Road, overlooks Portsmouth Harbour.
Kim Caldwell, regional sales and marketing director said: ‘We have built several successful developments in Gosport previously, although this is the first for a number of years.
‘Our return to the area has been a really welcome with our new development already receiving plenty of interest from retirees in the Gosport area, which has resulted in construction gathering pace.’
