Urban Village Healthcare lodges plans for Blackburn canalside scheme

Midlands-based care home developer Urban Village Healthcare has filed plans for a 70-bed care home with seven assisted living apartments in Blackburn, Lancashire.

The Sutton Coldfield outfit has applied to Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council to build a four-storey scheme backing on to the Leeds & Liverpool canal.

Paperwork lodged with the local authority show all bedrooms will feature full wet room ensuite bathrooms.

The proposed care home would also include a coffee shop, library, gym, hairdressing and cinema.

In addition, there will be a large reception area, family meeting room, and a secure, landscaped garden with raised flower beds.

All communal areas will look out on to the proposed landscaped grounds to the front or rear, so as to offer different views form the home, for the residents.

All new bedrooms are of a generous size, meanwhile, with a number of the ground floor rooms having access to a patio area.

Urban Village expects the Blackburn scheme to create approximately 70 full-time equivalent jobs.

Once completed, the care home will be let to Bracebridge Care Group for a minimum of 25 years.

Urban Village Group chief executive Nick Sellman said: “Our development at Blackburn forms part of our mission to improve senior living provision in this country and will be a fantastic facility for families in the region.

“With old age, the level of disability and dependency increases rapidly and impacts significantly on the demand for care services, with around 400,000 older people in care homes in the UK. Urban Village Healthcare is determined to help meet this demand,” he added.
