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 2 September 2019 with handover of keys to the building on 18 December 2020.

The home will welcome the first residents in early 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 will be submitted for planning consultation in February 2019.
