Work will start later this year on a 12-month programme to build a care home at a £30m mixed-use site in Nottingham.

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

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

Mark Edwards, managing director of AC Lloyd Commercial, said this was the first development to receive full planning permission at Teal Park. Work will start in November with the aim to open towards the end of 2020.

50 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 ensuite bedrooms with
wet rooms.

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 homes 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 mixed-use development containing a pub/restaurant, food store, ancillary retail units and children’s nursery as well as a 50,000 sq ft trade park for up to 12 units and 145,000 sq ft of employment units across seven premises if these plans are given the green light.

Scott Davidson, managing director of Nottingham and Birmingham based HDD which is delivering the project for AC Lloyd, said: “This is the first step in bringing forward a range of community facilities that will serve the existing and new residents of Netherfield and we look forward to announcing further occupiers in the near future.”
