Go-ahead has been granted for a state-of-the-art care home at a £30m mixed use site in Nottingham.
Work will start in November after Gedling Borough Council approved LNT Care Developments’ plans to create a 66-bed residential and dementia care home.
The plans are part of a 20-acre site at Teal Park off the Colwick Loop Road in Netherfield which is being developed by Warwick-based AC Lloyd alongside Henry Davidson Developments (HDD).
Nick Broadbent, development director at LNT Care Developments, said: “Our other care homes in Arnold, Bulwell and Newark have been extremely well received because of the high standard of our care and the homes we have created,” he said.
“Receiving planning permission from Gedling Borough Council means we can start enabling works on site this month before we start to build the infrastructure.
“Work will really start in earnest in November and our building programme usually takes 12 months since everything is to a high specification.
“As work progresses, we will start to promote our job vacancies since we will be looking to fill a range of posts.”
The care home will be part of a mixed-use development containing a pub/restaurant, food store, ancillary retail units and children’s nursery as well as a 50,000 sq ft trade park for up to 12 units and 145,000 sq ft of employment units across seven premises if these plans are given the green light.
An LNT spokesperson said the operator of the care home would be revealed in the coming months.
