Plans for Telford care home approved

Fifty jobs look set to be created after a care home operator has been granted planning permission for a 66-bed facility in Telford, it has emerged.

Telford & Wrekin Council Planning Committee approved the planning application from LNT Care Developments for the care home. 

The facility, on Lawley Drive, will provide residential and dementia care for those aged over 65 years. Construction is due to start in August with a predicted completion date for August 2018. 

Christine Cooper, project director at LNT Care Developments, said: “We are delighted to be building such a fantastic care home in Telford.

"It will create 50 jobs in the local area and provide a high quality resource for elderly people in the local community. The facility will incorporate intelligent dementia design and be eco-friendly by benefitting from ground source heat pumps and LED lighting keeping utility costs low.”

Once complete, the home will be a strong community facility, integrating with the nearby local facilities of shops, churches and schools, she added.

"It will provide outstanding accommodation with fully en-suite bedrooms, spacious communal areas, and state-of-the-art amenities including a cinema, library, garden room and tea shop, all surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens.

The home is designed to best enable the delivery of quality care and provide a positive lifestyle choice for local people who may be frail, elderly or living with dementia."
