Green light for care facility extension

Lidder Care has secured planning permission to extend Newgate Lodge Care Home in Mansfield.

The extension and improvement works have been unanimously approved by Mansfield District Council’s planning committee and will see the facility grow from 60 to 84 beds.

As part of the expansion, Newgate Lodge will include a ground floor bistro within a new and improved entrance area, cinema room, Japanese garden and a hairdressing salon. Larger bedrooms with wet room facilities.

PKL Investments, the construction arm of Lidder Care, will be the main contractor for the project.

Manjas Lidder, managing director of Lidder Care, said: “This approach of using our in-house construction team not only secures superior quality but also maintains control over the building and development process to limit disruption to our existing residents during the construction phase.”

“It is important we continue investing in our homes to build on the high-level of care we provide to those living with dementia. This exciting extension ensures a care-orientated design to meet the specialist needs of residents as well as Lidder Care’s operational needs.

This includes high-quality private accommodation with accessible and inclusive living spaces designed to suit to residents with reduced mobility.

“Newgate Lodge Care Home takes immense pride in its residents, colleagues and the remarkable community that surrounds it. As the home embarks on the next chapter of its journey, we look forward to continuing to provide compassion, exceptional care and new adventures for all those who call Newgate Lodge their home.”

Work on site is expected to get underway in the Spring of 2024.
