Fifty jobs created if care home given go ahead

The largest builder of purpose-built care homes in the UK has submitted plans to create its fifth complex in Nottinghamshire at a new £30 million mixed-use site.

LNT Care Developments has put forward proposals to Gedling Borough Council to build a 66-bedroom care home for those with residential and residential dementia care needs, as part of a wider 20-acre site at Teal Park which is being developed by Warwick-based AC Lloyd in conjunction with Henry Davidson Developments (HDD).

Fifty full-time jobs would be created if the development is given the go ahead and the care home would include a cinema, garden room, library, hairdressing salon, coffee shop and tea shop.

All 66 bedrooms would be en-suite complete with wet rooms, and if the application is successful, work would start at the site off the Colwick Loop Road in Netherfield towards the end of this year.

The operator has already constructed care homes in Arnold, Bulwell, Newark and Nottingham city centre.

Nick Broadbent, development director at LNT Care Developments, said the business has been involved in the sector for over 20 years.

“We felt there was a strong requirement for a purpose-built care home with modern facilities and the site has a strong, prominent location,” he said.

“We pride ourselves on providing state-of-the-art facilities that improve the lives of our residents by promoting active lifestyles and independence.

“We have submitted the planning application and would hope to hear in the next couple of months. If we are successful, the care home would open towards the end of 2020.”

The care home would be part of a mixed use development containing a pub/restaurant, food store, ancillary retail units and children’s nursery as well as a 53,000 sq ft trade park for up to 12 units and 141,000 sq ft of employment units across seven premises if the plans are given the green light.
