This week, plans have been revealed for a new, purpose-built care home at Orchard Grove, Comeytrowe’s 2,000-home community currently under development. The state-of-the-art new facility will be run by Trull-based business, Amica Care Trust, to provide much-needed specialist dementia, residential and respite care. It is expected that the facility will also create over 100 new local jobs.

The care home, being delivered by Mercian Group , will provide a modern, welcoming and high-quality care environment, with plans including the creation of 68 bedrooms across two floors, all with ensuite bathrooms. A range of communal spaces and amenities have been designed for relaxing and socialising, including a café, lounges, dining areas, spa, hair salon, multi-purpose activity rooms and quiet rooms.

Brookbanks are proud to have managed the applications for this development, meanwhile managing the development across the site and navigating the ever-growing Nutrient Neutrality issue to allow the Care Home to proceed.
