Northampton officials give planning nod to Avery Healthcare scheme

Council officials have recommended approval for Avery Healthcare’s plans to develop a 56-bed care home in Northampton.

Planning officers have given the nod ahead of a Northampton Borough Council committee vote on 7 July.

Avery plans to replace the demolished Cedarwood care home on Kettering Road with a three-story development.

The proposed care home consists of a ground floor with 21 bedrooms, a first floor of 24 bedrooms, and second floor of 11 bedrooms.

The top floor will also include communal facilities including cinema space, hairdresser, treatment room, library, activity rooms and a private dining room. 

Each wing features a large bathroom, designed to “feel like a spa while being fully accessible to all guests to add a sense of luxury to the building”, according to planning documents.

If approved, the new care home is expected to create between 56 and 60 new employment opportunities in the local area.

TDC Architects has been appointed by Avery to undertake the architectural services relating to the proposed scheme.

Avery Healthcare is a Northampton-based company that operates 60 elderly communities across the UK, providing residential and nursing care for over 4,500 residents.

In addition, four retirement living properties offer independent living facilities for over 300 individuals with further developments planned and in progress.
