Planning Permission Granted For 66 Bed Care Home in Bicester

Posted on the 19 Sep 2018

LNT Care Developments has received planning permission to build a 66-bed care home on land at Skimmingdish Lane, Bicester. Planning was approved after an appeal with Cherwell District Council on 14th September 2018 for the care home.  The facility will provide residential and dementia care for those aged over 65 years.

Construction is due to start November 2018 with a predicted completion date for December 2019.  Once complete, the home will be a strong community facility, integrating with the nearby local facilities of shops, churches and schools. 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.

Nick Broadbent, Development Director at LNT Care Developments, said:

“We are delighted to be building such a fantastic care home in Bicester. 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.”
