Churchill Retirement Living

A new Churchill Retirement community in Banbury


This consultation is presented on behalf of Churchill Retirement Living and invites you to view and provide feedback on our initial proposals for the former Buzz Bingo site, Bolton Road, Banbury.

Churchill Retirement Living’s vision for the site is to deliver a development that meets our resident’s needs and the local need for retirement apartments, whilst making a significant contribution locally in terms of social, economic and environmental benefits.

Churchill’s proposals would contribute positively to the character and appearance of Castle Street and North Bar Street, replacing a dated former bingo hall, with an attractive and traditional retirement living community.

The existing Bingo Hall wraps around Trelawn House, a listed Georgian townhouse and has an overbearing relationship with the building. The proposals present an opportunity to open up Trelawn House enabling it to re-establish its dominance in the Street Scene.

The proposal seeks to continue the line of trees along Castle Street to enhance the local landscape character.

This website provides a wide range of information regarding the site and, our plans, plus information about Churchill Retirement Living’s retirement communities. You can review this information using the tabs on this website and by looking at our virtual exhibition.
