Development site in Somerset sold to LNT Care

A site with the benefit of full planning consent in the market town of Midsomer Norton, Somerset, has been acquired by LNT Care Developments.

Planning permission was granted in February 2019 for the construction of a 66-bedroom care home on the 1.3-acre site. The scheme sits within a wider residential development which also includes a new primary school.

Previously owned by Strategic Land Partnerships, the site has been purchased by LNT Care Developments, the largest provider of carbon-zero, affordable, and high-quality care homes in the UK.

Keeley Sharp, strategic land director at LNT Group, said: “LNT Care Developments is delighted to have acquired this scheme in Midsomer Norton, adding to an established and emerging pipeline of sites across the South West and in line with our strategy to continue to address the shortfall in quality care provision across the UK. With planning permission already secured for a 66-bedroom care home, LNT construction has commenced works on site, and we look forward to the opening in late Autumn 2024.”

Sara Hartill, associate director – healthcare development at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, added: “A care home development site in this location is well suited to the needs of future residents and will integrate well into the town as a vital community asset where there was a demonstrable need for a new, purpose-built care home. The scheme sits within an attractive wider development that will offer much-needed provision for generations to come. We look forward to seeing the finished product.”
