When would work start?

On 5 June, at the Council's Development and Control Committee, we were pleased to receive planning permission, with requirements.   

Demolition and construction is estimated to take 72 weeks.  Target dates are: start on site January 2020 with handover of keys to the building in July 2021.

The home will welcome the first residents in Autumn 2021.

What will the home be like?

The home is being designed to meet the highest standards in nursing and care for older people.  Subject to a review of the project by the Council's Children's and Adults Care and Education Committee in February 2019, designs were submitted for planning consultation in February 2019.

Illustrations of what the home will look like can be viewed in the Photo Gallery on this site. All other drawings and plans submitted with the Planning application can be viewed on the Council's Planning portal.
