Plans have been approved for a Kingsley Healthcare luxury care home in Holt, north Norfolk.
The green light for the 66 en-suite bed home from North Norfolk District Council means construction work on the project, which will generate 100 jobs, can begin this summer.
The project has been spearheaded by Kingsley’s nationally renowned project team, including award-winning architects Condy Lofthouse and planning consultants Bidwells.
Muj Malik, Kingsley’s chief investment officer, said: “We are delighted that our scheme has received such a positive response from local stakeholders, including Holt Town Council, and are looking forward to starting building work.”
The aim is for the home in Hempstead Road to be ready for its first residents by autumn 2022.
A spokesman for Holt Town Council said: “The council welcomes the project which will provide much needed care for the elderly in our community, as well as creating many jobs for local people.”
The Holt scheme is one of a pipeline of next generation nursing homes Kingsley is rolling out across the country as part of its Vision 2025; the aim is to double the group’s size over the next five years.
Daya Thayan, CEO of Kingsley, who was rated a top 10 UK CEO by Glassdoor for his handling of the pandemic, said: “We are proud to be raising the standard for elderly care and are passionate about making a positive contribution to local communities.
“This home will generate well-paid jobs from senior managers and nurses to chefs, support workers, maintenance and housekeepers.”
Approval for Holt has come days after plans were agreed for a luxury nursing home in Olney, Buckinghamshire.
In November last year, Kingsley opened 66-bedroom Brackley Care Home in the Northamptonshire market town of Brackley; it has since acquired two existing luxury homes in the North West and Norfolk.
