Hallmark Care Homes has secured planning consent for a 79-bed, luxury care home in Bath, Somerset.
The 1.3-acre site on Frome Road, which was secured with help from national planning and development consultant, Turley, will house a residential, dementia and nursing care home that will be built by Savista Developments.
Chair of Hallmark Care Homes and Managing Director of Savista Developments, Avnish Goyal, said: “We are delighted to have secured planning permission for this wonderful facility that will be an asset to the community and local residents. The home will have a number of innovative ideas and new features that we are looking to showcase when it opens in late 2021.”
The state-of-the-art development, which will create 120 jobs, will feature a café, cinema, hairdressers and therapy room, as well as a wellness suite, winter and roof garden and library, as well as a mixture of spacious ensuite bedrooms and suites.
The new home will also have a specially designed dementia community with a centralised activity hub, which will include an additional hair salon, a reminiscence lounge and activity room.
Turley provided planning and heritage and townscape services for the project which will commence construction in April 2020. The development, which will be Hallmark’s 24th care home, is scheduled to open its doors to its first residents in late 2021.
