LNT Care Developments get the go ahead for RNBT’s centenary care home project

Posted on the 28 Jul 2020

LNT Care Developments are pleased to announce that Portsmouth City Council have given the go ahead for the building of a state-of-the–art care home for naval veterans in Milton, Portsmouth.  The application was supported by the Planning Committee and authority delegated to grant planning permission subject to completion of a suitable Section 106 Agreement and suitably worded conditions.  The impressive 66-bed home, to be named Admiral Jellicoe House after the founder of RNBT, will be built on Locksway Road on a site close to St James’ Hospital, with its strong historic links to care for the naval community, owned by NHS England.    

The home will be a strong community facility, integrating with the nearby local facilities of shops, churches and schools. The home is designed to best enable the delivery of quality care and provide a positive lifestyle choice. It will provide outstanding accommodation with fully en-suite bedrooms and suites, spacious communal areas, and state-of-the-art amenities including a cinema, library, garden room and tea shop, all surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens.

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

“We are delighted to have received planning on this care home in Portsmouth to be able to build for the RNBT for their centenary year. The home is designed to 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.”

RNBT Chairman of Trustees Nick Fletcher said

‘We are delighted that the City Council has given the go ahead for this most important project which will deliver residential, nursing and dementia care for naval veterans in Portsmouth, the Home of the Royal Navy.  It will be the centrepiece of our centenary – what better way to mark our hundred years of care than by building such an impressive and important care home for naval veterans.’  

LNT has recently completed two new homes in Bicester and Sandbach and is currently building on 13 sites
