Senior living specialist, Charterpoint, has secured planning permission for a 73-bed residential care home in Thurnby, Leicestershire.
The scheme features a range of care accommodation arranged over three floors, including resident lounges, dining and relaxation areas, a cinema room, hair and nails studio, and café and private dining room, along with terraces and gardens.
Harborough District Council has approved the development on the 0.48-hectare site in Uppingham Road, which will also feature car parking spaces, including electric charging points.
Charterpoint Senior Living director, Giles Nursey, said: “The development will provide high-quality care accommodation for the local community in a purpose-built, best-in-class setting.
“It is an attractive scheme that will enhance the neighbourhood, providing jobs for local people, as well as offering superb residential care.”
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.
