Work to start on Nottingham care home


Scheme is first stage of £30m mixed-use development

Work will start later this year on a 12-month programme to create a state-of-the-art care home at a new £30m mixed-use development in Nottingham.

Gedling Borough Council has approved plans from LNT Care Developments to create a 66-bedroom development for people with residential and dementia care needs.

The complex will be part of a 20-acre scheme at Teal Park off the Colwick Loop Road in Netherfield, which is being developed by Warwick-based, AC Lloyd, alongside Henry Davidson Developments (HDD).

The goahead from the planning department means work will start in November, with the aim to open towards the end of 2020.

Fifty full-time jobs will be created at the care home, which will include a cinema, garden room, library, hairdressing salon, coffee shop and tea shop, and 66 en-suite bedrooms with wetrooms.

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 environments we have created.

“Receiving planning permission from Gedling Borough Council means we can start enabling works on site this month before we start to build the infrastructure.”

The care home will be part of a proposed mixed-use development containing a pub/restaurant, food store, ancillary retail units, and children’s nursery as well as a 50,000sq ft trade park for up to 12 units and 145,000sq ft of employment units across seven premises.

Mark Edwards, managing director of AC Lloyd Commercial, said: “Teal Park is a really-exciting venture for AC Lloyd Commercial and it has sparked a great deal of interest from local and national operators.

“We were approached early on by LNT Care Developments and it is fantastic that planning approval has been secured, since the home will provide high-quality care for the residents who will be very much part of the community in Netherfield.”
