One of the north’s largest independent care home providers is planning a multi- million pound investment in Inverness.
Parklands Group has submitted plans to The Highland Council for a £6.5 million care home and assisted living suites in the city.
The development, at Milton of Leys, will include a 48 bed care home in the first phase and 16 assisted living suites in the second phase. The first phase is expected to open in 2019, subject to planning approval, and the development will create around 100 jobs when complete.
Ron Taylor, managing director of Parklands Group, said: “We are delighted to add Inverness to our growing network of care homes in the Highlands. This facility will be at the heart of the fast growing Milton of Leys community and will offer stunning panoramic views to the north. It is our most ambitious investment yet and will deliver a flagship care facility for the Highland capital.
“Inverness has been in our sights for some time and we are very excited at the prospect of establishing a state of the art care hub for older people in the city. Our model combines traditional residential care for those who need it, and assisted living support for those who are able to lead independent lives.”
