73-bed home gets thumbs-up for council planners
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, café and private dining area, 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.
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.
