Northampton Borough Council Planning Committee approved the planning application on 18th October 2016 for the care home, which will be owned and operated by Oakdale Care Group. The facility will provide a care home for those aged over 65 years.
Construction will began on site in November, with a predicted completion date for September 2017. This site represents an excellent opportunity for a new care facility, in a prominent location fronting Timken Way South, sustainably located adjacent to the St Luke’s Primary Care Centre and the ‘key focal building’ at the gateway to the heart of the developing community on the former British Timken site.
Once complete, the home will be a much needed community facility contributing towards employment and 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 and 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.
Chris Babington, Finance Director at Oakdale Care Group, said:
“We are proud at Oakdale Care Group to be able to deliver these outstanding luxury homes to the local residents of Duston in September of next year. Our partners at LNT have helped us create truly magnificent homes that will allow us to provide the exceptional care and services that we want all of our residents to experience and benefit from. As owners and founders of Oakdale Care Group, we are a small group of like-minded individuals who understand that when it comes to care, only the highest of standards will do.“
