LNT Care Developments acquires care home site

LNT Care Developments has purchased a care home site with full planning consent in the market town of Nuneaton, Warwickshire, from Linden Homes.

Full planning permission was granted in September 2019 for the demolition of existing buildings on the 1.3-acre site, as well as the erection of a new 78-bedroom care home in one three-storey block.

Plans have been submitted to Nuneaton and Bedworth County Council for a care home development comprising 66 beds with social spaces including a cinema room, health and beauty facilities, garden room, café bar and attractive landscaped gardens. The building is designed to be resource and energy-efficient aiming to generate the majority of the home’s energy needs on-site using solar power and ground source heating.

LNT Group’s land director, Keeley Sharp, said: “LNT Care Developments is delighted to have acquired this scheme in Nuneaton, adding to an established and emerging pipeline of sites across the Midlands and in line with our strategy to continue to address the shortfall in quality care provision across the UK. Detailed planning has been submitted for a 66-bedroom care home, providing outstanding accommodation with fully en suite bedrooms, spacious communal areas, and state-of-the-art amenities with a planned construction commencement September 2022.”

David Charles of Linden Homes added: “We are delighted that LNT acquired the site and plan to develop a care home for the elderly which is much needed in the area and we look forward to seeing the site develop.”

The deal was facilitated by business property advisor, Christie & Co. Sara Hartill, business agent – healthcare development at Christie & Co, said: “A care home development site in this location is well suited to the needs of future residents and will integrate well into the town as a vital community asset where there was a demonstrable need for a new, purpose-built care home.”
