Yorkshire care home invests £1.5m in expansion project

Planning permission has been granted for Czajka Care Group to invest £1.5m in the expansion of its Currergate care home in Steeton, Yorkshire.

Rated ‘Good’ by the CQC, the 34-bed home opened in 1982 and has been owned and run by the Czajka family for 20 years. Currergate provides day care, respite care, full-time care, and end of life care.

A first floor and side extension to the existing single storey west wing will be attached to the historic building via a first-floor glazed link. The existing two-storey extension to the east of the building will be demolished and replaced with a larger three storey extension.

Czajka Care Group’s managing director Konard Czajka said: “The main aim of our exciting development is to increase the capacity of our nursing home and ensure its long-term viability. We believe these carefully thought through plans will also improve the appearance of the west wing by replacing the existing pink coloured artificial stone with a more complementary natural stone, amongst several other benefits.

“Our designs are sympathetic to the appearance and special interest of Currergate and have been carefully considered at every stage. By removing the inappropriate artificial stone, we will be making the building right again and we are delighted to have started work on the project.

“This development will give our wonderful nursing home a secure and sustainable financial future as part of a significant investment into this historic building that we have owned and loved for 20 years. We believe we will create at least 25 full-time jobs and help address the chronic shortage of beds for both private and local authority funded residents.”
