Charterpoint secures planning permission for Leicestershire care home


73-bed facility to be built in Thurnby

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, and café and private dining room, 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 spaces, including electric charging points.

Charterpoint Senior Living director, Giles Nursey, said: “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.”
