Healthcare developer LNT Care Developments today announced its multimillion-pound investment plans to deliver a purpose-built care home in the town.

The new retirement home for the elderly will be located on Adderley Road opposite Aldi, north of the A53.

Keeley Sharp, Director of Development at LNT, said: “Our mission is to provide every older person in England with the option of a high quality place to live that offers an excellent quality of life.

“Our care homes offer this in a home that is tailored to their needs, designed to meet their changing needs.”

The care home will have 66 en suite bedrooms, as well as general residential care and care for people with dementia.

Residents can benefit from a range of communal facilities including lounges and dining rooms, garden and cinema rooms, a cafe bar and health and beauty facilities.

The building itself is designed to be energy efficient with the aim of generating the majority of the house’s energy needs on site using solar power and underfloor heating.

“The proposed nursing home will give seniors the opportunity to live locally and maintain the important connections made throughout their lives,” Keeley said.

“The site is perfect for this given its location within an established and vibrant residential community with excellent access to public transport and daily amenities.”

The care home will be surrounded by gardens to promote health and well-being, as well as ecological benefits through greater use of pollination and respect for the habitat.

“The proposal provides a significant opportunity to contribute to the sustainable growth of Market Drayton,” added Keeley.

“It will generate substantial economic, social and environmental benefits for the local community, including 50-60 new jobs once the house is operational.”

Residents of Market Drayton and surrounding areas, as well as local councilors, will be consulted on the proposals, which will soon be sent to Shropshire Council for consideration.
