Proposed Indicative Care Home Plan in Newbury

The outline application is seeking permission for the redevelopment of the site and construction of a 67-bed residential care home with associated car parking, hard and soft landscaping, and new pedestrian and vehicular access on land adjacent to Kennett Reach within the settlement of Newbury. The outline application to West Berkshire Council is made with landscaping as a reserved matter.

The site lies south of the dual-carriage A4 London Road and is accessed from a local road serving a handful of nearby dwellings, Ham Manor marina to the west and is bounded by River Kennett to the south.

The proposed development is within a short walking distance to the centre of Newbury via the towpath navigation.

The site comprises an overgrown disused garden, tennis court, scrub vegetation, and with trees and hedgerows around the perimeter.

The three-storey, care home building will include recreational spaces for guests including a lounge, dining room, cinema, and activity room, a hair and nail salon, landscaped gardens for residents, and spacious en-suite bedrooms with external aspect.
