Senior living specialist Charterpoint has secured planning permission for a 73-bed residential care home in Thurnby, Leicestershire.

The scheme features a range of care accommodation arranged over three floors, including resident lounges, dining and relaxation areas, a cinema room, hair and nails studio, café and private dining, along with terraces and gardens.

Harborough District Council has approved the development on the 0.48-hectare site in Uppingham Road, which will also feature car parking, including electric charging points.

Charterpoint Senior Living director Giles Nursey said: “We are very pleased to have secured planning permission for this site in Thurnby in Leicestershire. The development will provide high quality care accommodation for the local community in a purpose-built, best-in-class setting.

“It is an attractive scheme that will enhance the neighbourhood, providing jobs for local people, as well as offering superb residential care. This is the latest in a number of planning approvals for care homes secured by Charterpoint. As an experienced East Midlands-based company that specialises in all forms of senior living development, Charterpoint is delighted that this scheme can now move forward to fruition.”

The development – designed by specialist care architect Edmund Williams in collaboration with Tulip Care Environments – will involve the demolition of commercial premises used by a car and van dealership and two further properties that are currently on the site.

Charterpoint, which is based at Edwalton near Nottingham, specialises in developing first-class senior living accommodation, sustainable housing schemes, and primary care premises.
