Where is IRT Sarah Claydon?

IRT Sarah Claydon covers approximately 2.6 hectares located near Milton and the Milton Ulladulla Hospital.

Milton was founded 150 years ago and is full of history with a strong sense of community. Surrounded by the picturesque Pigeon House Mountain on one side and stunning white sand beaches on the other, there is something for everyone.

Milton also offers plenty of opportunities for shopping with boutiques, art galleries and antique shops lining the streets. 

IRT Sarah Claydon property boundaries

The main entrance to IRT Sarah Claydon is located at 130 Princes Highway, which is the main street in Milton. The property is set back, blocking the noise of traffic while still having easy access to the centre of town and views of the surrounding hills. 

We want to design with you

To ensure the redevelopment of IRT Sarah Claydon meets the needs of older Australians, IRT is undertaking a collaborative design process with existing residents, employees and the local community.

This approach will engage a wide range of stakeholders in the creative process of the design of the new seniors living development.

We want to hear from you on:

  • Key features to improve retirement living
  • Current gaps in IRT’s retirement living offering
  • Any opportunities that could exist for local seniors.

We’re especially interested in understanding key features, services and products that are most important to older Australians and how IRT Sarah Claydon can positively contribute to the local community.

We are partnering with experts

IRT is partnering with Strategic Development Group to facilitate and support this collaborative design process.

Strategic Development Group is a company based in the Illawarra which specialises in creating meaningful engagement with people affected by developments. They aim to genuinely include local communities in the development process by incorporating ideas and aspirations in planning and design.

They believe that this development can positively change people’s lives in significant ways.  By engaging local residents, businesses and other stakeholders, better outcomes will be produced leading to a connected, thriving community at IRT Sarah Claydon.
