Oak Tree was delighted to receive notification from Rockhampton Regional Council during the last week that its second village in Yeppoon has been formally approved. This gives Oak Tree the opportunity to make another 62 villas available to seniors in the Yeppoon/Rockhampton catchment. If all goes according to plan, we should see works commence on site inside the next two months.
Providing a retirement alternative for regional markets is what drives us at Oak Tree. In many instances, people are faced with the prospect of having to move away from their home in order to find suitable accommodation. We are doing our best to alleviate this problem. Certainly in Yeppoon now, another batch of villas await those seeking to downsize and improve their lifestyle.
Of course the success of our Rockhampton and first Yeppoon villages prompted us to investigate another Yeppoon project. With Oak Tree Yeppoon basically sold out, the time is now right to expand our offer in this fantastic coastal town. Rockhampton seniors are also welcome to investigate this option through Robyn (our Park Avenue – Rockhampton Village Manager) and Tarnya (our Yeppoon Village Manager). As I write, we are investigating options for a second village in Rockhampton with our first project selling out some years ago.
I recently had a glimpse of some preliminary information from the 2011 census that we all took part in. Not surprisingly, the number of people over 65 in Australia is expanding rapidly – far faster then village development is occurring. Unfortunately this will mean that many will be without a suitable place to go when the time comes to seek more manageable housing options.
If you’ve been thinking about a change for some time, then maybe this is the right time to call us…we’d love to help.
I can’t believe September is upon us. In no time we’ll be talking Xmas activities – time flies!
Until next time, warmest regards
