Planning permission received for new Hinckley care home

Rayner Davies Architects have received planning permission for a 67-bed care home and bowls club on Coventry Road, Hinckley. The Care Build Group are developing the site.

On the site of the former Clarendon Club and the Sweet Pea Bowling Club, the development will be a three-storey building providing specialist care for the elderly. A new bowling green and pavilion is to be provided for the bowls club.

The home will include a ground floor café/bistro lounge which opens out on to external patio spaces, separate lounge and dining spaces on each level, a library, a cinema, a bar/pub and a hairdressing salon.

Lounge and dining facilities at all three residential levels will overlook the bowling green with roof terraces above to allow views out over the activities on warm days. The communal café/bistro and bar are located centrally in the plan and serve as the entrance to the facility, whilst also connecting directly out on to the residents’ communal garden space.

The ground floor facilities are to be shared by residents and visiting family members. The facilities included, along with the layout of the home, have been designed to encourage a variety of age groups and communities to congregate within the public areas.

Rayner Davies project architect Julien McGuinness said: “We are delighted to have been granted planning permission for this care home for The Care Build Group. The site is unusual in having a dual-purpose sports and care facility so working the two together was a definite challenge. However, the end user experience will be improved no end as a result.”

Howard Ward Associates of Nottingham provided structural design with Zenith Planning acting as planning advisors.

Radcliffe on Trent contractors Wynbrook are expecting to start on site later this year.
