Burghley Retirement Living is launching a competition this week inviting local people to help with the naming of their new multi-million-pound retirement development at Stanley Parkway, Wakefield.

“There really are no better people to ask to name this exciting new retirement development, than those living locally” says Marie Buckingham, development director from the company behind the construction, Burghley Retirement Living.

“They know the area better than anyone and I’m sure will have great ideas on what should be commemorated by the name. It could be a connection to the city’s heritage and history, local scenery, or iconic people from the area. It’s your chance to put a personal mark on a piece of Wakefield and if you win, you’ll be invited to unveil the new name for us in a few months’ time. All ideas are welcome and good luck. “

A brand new construction, this is Burghley Retirement Living’s fifth development, and will be available exclusively to the over 55’s. Plans include a collection of 33 one-bedroom and 25 two-bedroom apartments for sale or rent, alongside communal facilities including a communal lounge with adjoining orangery, a hotel-style Guest Suite and landscaped gardens. Completion is expected in January 2025 with show apartments available to view from late 2024.

If you’d like to enter, please email competition@burghleygroup.co.uk with your suggested development name and the reason behind it. Please include ‘Wakefield Naming Competition’ in the subject header, in addition to your name and contact details in the email. The deadline for entries is 10th November 2023.
