The new apartments for the elderly

A development specifically for older people has been completed in the centre of Maidstone.

Thomas Robert Gardens is a joint venture between the Cutbush and Corrall charity and social housing provider Golding Homes.

It comprises 26 homes.

Six apartments are to be owned and managed by Cutbush and Corrall, which already operates a number of almshouses across the borough.

The remainder will be managed by Golding Homes, for those aged 50 and over.

The development in Church Street includes spaces for mobility scooters and there is a security entry system. Each self-contained apartment has a flush-floor shower.

The development is named after Thomas Robert Cutbush, the founder of the Cutbush and Corrall almshouses, and shares a garden with charity’s neighbouring almshouses.

Thomas Cutbush lived in a house on the corner of Church Street and King Street, and worshiped at Trinity Church.

He founded his almshouses for occupation by “decayed married tradesmen” who had been employed in Maidstone for at least 20 years in 1865.
