Kirklees Council has granted Meridian Healthcare planning permission for a new £4.5million care centre in Denby Dale.
The new facility will meet the rising demand for quality care in the area around Denby Dale and Kirkburton. Across Kirklees as a whole, the ageing population is set to rise by around 33 per cent in the next ten years.
The new care home is on the site of a former animal feed mill on Wakefield Road, which has been demolished to make way for the new building. Facilities for residents will include large bedroom suites, a Skype internet lounge, piano lounge, spa and hairdressing salon. The home is scheduled for completion in autumn 2014.
Susan Firth, Meridian’s managing director commented: “We’re delighted to start building work. There is significant demand for modern luxurious care facilities in the area from families who are often caring for a relative at home. We believe our Premiere care homes are unrivalled in the quality of the finish and accommodation provided.
Award-winning Holmfirth developer, Conroy Brook, has been working in partnership with Meridian Healthcare for the last four years to bring this site to fruition. Conroy Brook previously developed The Oakes in Huddersfield, a residential and dementia care home and White Rose House Nursing Home in Holmfirth.
