A new Residential Lifestyle Village containing over 90 independent living units and apartments, a multi-purpose community centre and a 60 bed Residential Aged Care Facility has been approved by Clarence City Council.

The Aged Care Facility is also being designed to allow for future expansion, subject to further approval, to accommodate 30 extra beds.

Fairway Rise Lifestyle Village will be constructed and operated by Southern Cross CareĀ on land formerly part of the Rosny Golf Course and made available by the State Government and Clarence City Council.

The site is within walking distance of Rosny Park facilities such as a Library, the new Integrated Care Centre and Eastlands. Construction of the development is expected to cost in excess of $40 million with works commencing in early 2012.

Clarence Mayor Doug Chipman said Clarence City Council was pleased to support a development that addressed an undersupply of appropriate quality housing for the aged.

"Being able to offer specialised accommodation so close to the amenities of Rosny Park will go some way to boosting this part of the housing market and offer more security to our ageing population," Mayor Chipman said.

"A wide range of housing types is required to meet the housing needs of southern Tasmanians and this development is a welcome addition to that mix.

"Although this has been a long process we are pleased that Southern Cross Care has taken on the challenge and Clarence can add to the City's range of excellent aged care facilities."
