Charterpoint planning to build new Leicestershire care home

Charterpoint Senior Living has applied for planning permission to build a 66-bed care home and local centre in Blaby, Leicestershire.

Subject to permission, the project, a joint venture with landowner The Drummond Estate, will form part of the pioneering New Lubbesthorpe development, which is set in 325 acres of new parklands and will eventually boast 4,250 homes. The plans submitted to Blaby District Council include a 66-bed care home, a two-storey local centre containing retail units, a café/bistro, and a medical centre.

The care home and local centre, both designed by Franklin Ellis Architects, have already received outline planning permission. It is hoped that construction will begin in spring 2023.

Based in Nottingham, Charterpoint specialises in developing mixed-use and sustainable housing schemes, senior living accommodation, and primary care premises.

Charterpoint managing director Giles Nursey said: “New Lubbesthorpe is an exciting, vibrant community set in a great countryside location just 20 minutes from Leicester city centre and ten minutes from Fosse Park Retail Centre.

“Charterpoint has carefully developed designs for the first of two local centres planned for the site, plus an adjacent care home, and we are very pleased to have now submitted a reserved matters planning application to Blaby District Council as the next part of the development process.”

Drummond Estate trustee Martin Ward added: “Community facilities, such as these, are vital to maintain the fantastic sense of community we have created at New Lubbesthorpe. The new local centre will complement the successful primary school and will be welcomed by those already living here and the new residents moving to site.”
