Plans submitted for 72-bed care home in Leicestershire

How the scheme would look

Plans have been submitted by senior living developer Charterpoint for a 72-bedroom care home in Markfield in north-west Leicestershire.

The proposals are for land to the north of Leicester Road.

They include plans for a mainly two-storey, modern care home, which also features en-suite bathrooms to each bedroom, residents’ lounge and dining areas, a café/bar, plus activity areas. The plans also include 34 car parking spaces, along with terraces, patios and landscaped gardens.

The plans have been submitted to Charnwood Borough and Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Councils following a public consultation process.

Managing Director of Charterpoint, Giles Nursey, said: “Charterpoint is a specialist senior living developer, with a significant portfolio of care homes developed across the East Midlands.

“We have established that there is a need for a modern, purpose-built care home to meet the needs of older people in the Markfield area of Leicestershire.

“In preparing our scheme we have sought to provide a high quality, modern and neighbourly development that sits within the existing landscape, maintaining and enhancing the existing boundary hedgerow along Leicester Road.”

Charterpoint, which is based at Edwalton near Nottingham, specialises in developing first-class senior living accommodation, mixed-use and sustainable housing schemes, and primary care premises.
