Muller Property Group has secured outline planning consent for a new residential care home in Clitheroe, Lancashire.
Ribble Valley Borough Council has unanimously approved Muller’s proposal for the 1.1 acre brownfield site, which is located to the north of Pendle Road, and within walking distance from the town centre. Existing commercial properties on the former Pendle Mill site will now be cleared to make way for a luxury residential care home.
Meeting the needs of the UK’s growing elderly population, the 3-storey care home will provide 70 spacious ensuite bedrooms. Enhancing the wellbeing of residents, the property will include the provision of a café/bistro, cinema, hair and nail salon, plus private dining rooms. Communal day spaces are also included within the design, facilitating sociable activities that encourage mental and physical stimulation.
The development features a large, secure garden for residents, with new landscaping to enhance and improve local biodiversity, together with the existing mature trees.
The completed care home facility is expected to create around 70 full-time jobs across a variety of disciplines and roles, including nurses and carers, managerial, maintenance and other ancillary roles.
