Brierfield Mills will be home to a new lifestyle model for older people.

Known as Evermore, the village is being developed by Pendle Enterprise & Regeneration Limited (PEARL), the pioneering joint venture development company between Barnfield Investment Properties and Pendle Borough Council, on behalf of Evermore Wellbeing Limited.

The village in Brierfield is the first of its kind to be built in England and will feature a five-storey building with 60 one-bed, self-contained apartments for sale. Each apartment will have a double-bedroom and ensuite, living room, kitchenette, and balcony. The apartments will be clustered into households of 12 with each household sharing communal living area and hearth including an open plan kitchen and large dining table.

Tim Webber, Managing Director of the Barnfield Group, said: “We’re excited about having the ground breaking Evermore proposition in Lancashire first, and in such an iconic local building. The Evermore concept combined with the fantastic regeneration of a landmark building will set the standard for what we demand of housing in later life.”

It is expected that construction of Evermore at Northlight will begin in Autumn 2014 with sales commencing in Spring 2015. This is the first village of at least 20 Evermore communities that will be built by 2020.
