Charterpoint on course to build Leicestershire home
Senior living specialist Charterpoint has secured planning permission for a 73-bed residential care home in Thurnby, Leicestershire.
The development features a range of care accommodation arranged over three floors, including resident lounges, dining and relaxation areas, a cinema room, hair and nails studio, café and private dining, along with terraces and gardens.
Harborough District Council approved the development on the 0.48-hectare site, which will also feature car parking with electric charging points.
The development – designed by specialist care architect Edmund Williams in collaboration with Tulip Care Environments - will involve the demolition of commercial premises used by a car and van dealership and two further properties that are currently on the site.
“We are very pleased to have secured planning permission for this site in Thurnby in Leicestershire. The development will provide high quality care accommodation for the local community in a purpose-built, best-in-class setting,” said Charterpoint Senior Living director Giles Nursey.
“It is an attractive scheme that will enhance the neighbourhood, providing jobs for local people, as well as offering superb residential care,” he added.
