LNT Care Developments has received planning permission to build a 66 bed care home on the site of the former Landmere Care Home in West Bridgford. It will provide residential and dementia care for those over 65 years.
Demolition has already begun on site, with construction due to start March 2017 and a predicted completion date for January 2018. Once complete, the home will be a strong community facility, integrating with the nearby local shops, churches and schools.
It will provide accommodation with fully en-suite bedrooms, spacious communal areas, and state-of-the-art amenities including a cinema, library, garden room and tea shop, all surrounded by landscaped gardens.
Christine Cooper, project director at LNT Care Developments, said: “We are delighted to be building such a fantastic care home in West Bridgford. We will be creating 50 jobs in the local area and providing a high quality resource for elderly people in the local community. The facility will incorporate intelligent dementia design and be eco-friendly by benefitting from ground source heat pumps, solar thermal panels and LED lighting keeping utility costs low.”
