Kingsley announces new Norfolk care home

Kingsley Healthcare is to build a £12 million care home in Holt, Norfolk.

Construction work will begin in the summer of 2021 subject to planning approval from North Norfolk District Council and will be ready for its first residents by autumn 2022.

Muj Malik, Kingsley’s chief investment officer, said: “We have had a positive response from local stakeholders. It is important for us and our future residents that the home becomes a central part of the community.

“It has always been our ambition to bring the Kingsley brand to the affluent market town of Holt which embodies everything that is wonderful about north Norfolk. We are proud to be delivering a luxury home fitting for the community.

“The home will have easy access to the town centre by footpaths and cycleways and there is a handy bus service.”

A spokesman for Holt Town Council said: “The council welcomes the proposed new care home off Hempstead Road, which will provide much needed care for the elderly in our community, as well as creating many jobs for local people.”

The Holt scheme is one of a pipeline of “next generation” nursing homes Kingsley is rolling out across the country.
The aim is to double the group’s size with investment of £150m to £200m over the next five years.
