In July 2015, Summerset announced that they’d secured a 127 year lease on the land adjoining St Johns Theological College, known as Parson’s Paddock. It is to become a retirement village. Summerset’s senior development manager, Aaron Smail, has agreed to present plans at June’s monthly meeting. This is an opportunity to ask questions and find out how this project will run.
