New retirement village schemes will be based on Anchor’s successful Denham Garden Village project in Buckinghamshire.
Villages typically house around 150 people and will contain a combination of apartments or houses and a specialist care home.
Anchor Chief Executive Jane Ashcroft said: “With nearly one in five of us expected to reach 100, our ageing population provides real opportunities for forward-thinking organisations to develop groundbreaking housing and care.
“In a tough economic climate it will also provide a real boost to the jobs market.”
Anchor is working with Keith Cockell, who formed ECV Partnerships two years ago to advise organisations on the care villages market, on finding sites, design direction and developing the village concept.
The team is currently identifying sites across the south of England and the home counties.
Cockell said: “I am looking forward to working with Anchor as we share the vision that the time has come to create exceptional homes and communities for older people in this country; communities that inspire and reward by giving a superb second phase of life.”
