Belong gets green light for £15m Nottinghamshire care village
Not for profit care village operator Belong has received planning permission for a £15m development in Beeston, Nottinghamshire.
The investment will see the former Myford’s factory site transformed into a state of the art care facility.
Tracey Stakes, Chief Executive of Belong, said: “We are thrilled that plans have been approved for the new Belong Beeston care village, especially since it will be our first site in the East Midlands. Our next step is to work through some outstanding issues around drainage and traffic control so that we can complete the purchase of the land and go out to tender for construction.”
The development, which will create more than 140 jobs, will provide Belong’s village model of care for over 100 residents and tenants.
As well as 24-hour support, including nursing care, independent living will be supported in 30 one or two bedroomed apartments available to rent or buy.
Facilities will include a bistro, hair salon, exercise studio and function rooms, which will be open to the public.
The village will also offer specialist day care for people within the local community, as well as the award winning Belong at Home domiciliary care service and access to an Admiral Nurse, specialising in dementia support.
Belong currently operates villages in Atherton, Crewe, Didsbury, Macclesfield, Wigan, Warrington and Newcastle Under Lyme. New sites in Birkdale and Chester are also scheduled to open by the end of 2019 and early 2020, respectively.
