For most of our Extra Care Housing estates we have agreements with the local authority to let a percentage of our vacant properties to people nominated by them. Hanover’s agreement for this estate is that all of the allocations are managed by the local authority, Gloucester City Council, who can be contacted on 01452 396396.
This Extra Care development has a very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere with an excellent community spirit. There is a very active residents' social group on site, with activities such as board games, afternoon tea and lunches.
An on-site manager looks after the buildings and grounds maintenance at St Catherine Court, plus you can receive advice on accessing further help and support as required.
Gloucester is a city in the beautiful county of Gloucestershire. It is close to the Forest of Dean and the outstanding natural beauty of the Cotswolds.
The main shopping area of the city fans out from The Cross. This is where the ancient streets of Northgate, Eastgate, Southgate and Westgate meet. You will find well known national brands interspersed with independent traders.
History and culture
The historic Victorian docks are a unique and inspiring destination. The Gloucester Quays area has been completely regenerated recently to create a unique blend of the old and the new. Waterside museums, bars, cafés, restaurants and an outlet shopping centre sit alongside new walkways and dramatic public art.
Gloucester Cathedral, in the north of the city near the river, originates from the foundation of an abbey dedicated to Saint Peter. The New Inn in Northgate Street is the last timbered house in the city and it was built around 1450.
