About Plymouth Court

Plymouth Court is the only Retirement Security Ltd managed Court which consists entirely of bungalows. Set in extensive landscaped grounds, the Court was built in two phases, opening with 39 bungalows in 1985, with a further 13 being added in 1988. The Court is in an established residential area close to the town of Redditch. There are a few local shops within five minutes’ walk, including a general grocery, newsagent and butcher. There is also a good bus service to Redditch town Centre less than a mile away, where there is an extensive range of shopping facilities including a new covered shopping mall with mobility services for disabled people.

Plymouth Court was built in 1985. The original leases were granted for 99 years but the actual period available will depend on the current date and whether any past owner has extended the lease.

Plymouth Court Facilities

The design of Plymouth Court combines style with ease of use and mobility, so that even those who need to use a wheelchair can live independently in any part of the building. Conveniently placed electrical sockets reduce the need to bend or overstretch and an emergency call system is installed with pull cords in every room of the development. In addition to the private bungalows, there are a number of communal areas in the Court available for use by all Owners.

Communal Areas

Plymouth Court has a communal lounge that is the hub of many of its social activities. Morning coffee and afternoon tea are served on a daily basis together with weekly events from whist to keep fit. The Court Manager will be able to provide a copy of the monthly social programme. In addition to the Lounge, there is a communal conservatory available for use by all Owners. The Court also features a Hobbies Room where Owners can take part in a number of activities including board games, card games, art and craft. The hobbies room is also used for meetings of either the Court management company or local clubs and societies of which Owners are members.

Guest Suite

Visiting relatives or friends of Owners can be accommodated in our extremely comfortable, guest suite and provided with breakfast. Economically priced and benefiting from the Court’s advantageous proximity to local attractions and public transport, staying at Plymouth Court is a wonderful way to explore the local sights and sounds.

Meals

Plymouth Court has its own communal restaurant/dining room that provides a substantial meal every day, usually at lunchtime. Meals are not included in the service charge but are available at cost to all Owners. Meals will be taken on a tray to anyone who has requested one and is too unwell to leave their apartment. Guests are always welcome and any special dietary requirements are catered for. Evening meals and themed dinners are regularly held at the Court and light suppers can be arranged if requested.

Laundry

As an alternative to Owners’ own laundry facilities, the Court has its own communal laundry room. It comes fully equipped with token-operated commercial washing and drying machines. The proceeds that come from use of the equipment belong collectively to the Owners’ funds. If desired, Owners’ washing can be done in the laundry by the Housekeeping Assistants, for which a charge will be made.

Housekeeping/Staffing

There are many more staff than are generally found in traditional sheltered housing. A Manager and team of Duty Managers work in shifts and somebody is always present, twenty-four hours a day. The monthly service charge covers the cost of external maintenance and upkeep of the grounds, one-and-a-half hours of domestic assistance per week per individual property, as well as an hour per property devoted to the cleaning of the communal areas.

Gardens

Plymouth Court possesses its own communal gardens, shrubs and planters throughout the courtyards and grounds, that belong to all the Owners and are maintained by a gardener and/or Owners themselves. A consultative gardening committee will be set up if sufficient Owners are willing to contribute to its work.
