Planning permission granted for new £15m Beeston care village

Planners have paved the way for the development of a £15m care village at a
key site in Beeston, Nottingham.

Broxtowe Borough Council has approved the scheme by Charterpoint Senior
Living, Peveril Securities and care provider Belong.

Featuring a 75-bedroom care facility, 30 supported living apartments and
village centre amenities, including a bistro, which will be open to the
public, a hair salon, exercise studio and function rooms, the development
will be on part of the former Myford works site on Chilwell Road.

The council has previously approved plans for 32 houses, 15 apartments and a
convenience food store for a separate section of the site.

Chief Executive of Edwalton-based Charterpoint, Adrian Goose, said: “The
care village will offer a range of high-quality care and nursing facilities
for people with differing needs.

“Research by leading care operators has shown that care villages provide
numerous benefits for older people, including less frailty, reduced rates of
depression and potential significant savings in social care costs for local
authorities. Care is provided on site, depending on residents’ needs.

“We know that loneliness can be a problem for some older people, and
retirement and care communities provide social opportunities, companionship
and activities – all of which can improve the health and well-being of
residents. We anticipate that this scheme will be a great asset to the
community of Beeston and its residents. At the same time, it will provide
jobs in Beeston and further enhance the local economy.”

Charterpoint, which is based at Wheatcroft Business Park, specialises in
delivering purpose-built senior living accommodation, including care homes,
extra care facilities and retirement living.

The care community in Beeston will be run by Belong, a not-for-profit,
charitable organisation, that provides a range of care, depending on needs.

Speaking about the new care village and wider redevelopment of the former
Myford works site, Peveril Homes’ Director James Smith said: “It is crucial
that with the UK’s ageing population, enough high quality care home
facilities are built to ensure that those in retirement living receive the
finest care possible.

“Coupled with the wider redevelopment incorporating modern apartments,
new-build homes and retail, this development will boost Beeston’s economy
and make a significant difference on a local level.”

As well as the care village, the former Myford works site of four and a half
acres will also feature 32 houses, 15 apartments and a convenience food
store, run by Central England Co-op Food Store, in a joint project by
Peveril Homes and Charterpoint. Infrastructure work is complete and
construction work is expected to begin shortly.
