Council chiefs have given the go ahead for a new 60-bed nursing room in Livingston Village, West Lothian.
Edinburgh based residential care provider Randolph Hill will build the £6m home, which will create 100 jobs, on the site of the former Kirkton Business Centre, the Daily Record reports.
Randolph Hill’s managing director, Peter McCormick, said: “We are pleased to have secured the purchase of the former Development Corporation building.
“Now that we have been granted planning permission we intend to progress with our proposal to build a high specification nursing home on the site by 2018, once we have completed existing company development projects which are currently underway.
“Our plans to create a high quality residential development will help fill a gap in the current offering in West Lothian and will also bring new jobs into the local community.
“We are confident that our investment in a new build this new home will enhance the site and benefit the wider community. We look forward to bringing these plans to fruition.”
Randolph Hill runs the Holmesview Nursing Home in Broxburn as well as various sites in Edinburgh, Dunblane and North Berwick.
