Village status

In November 2020, Summerset obtained approval of the resource consent by the Environment Court, with construction of the proposed Summerset village in Lower Hutt planned to start in 2021. When complete, the village will be home to approximately 300 residents and will offer the full continuum of care.

Options available will range from independent living and serviced apartments, to a care centre providing both rest home and hospital level care. It will also offer Summersets' state-of-the-art Memory Care Centre for people living with dementia.
