£12m nursing home scheme announced for Holt, North Norfolk
Kingsley Healthcare is delighted to unveil plans for its next luxury care home, in Holt, north Norfolk.
Construction work on the £12m project will begin in the summer of 2021 subject to planning approval from North Norfolk District Council.
The Holt scheme is one of an exciting pipeline of next generation nursing homes Kingsley is rolling out across the country as part of its Vision 2025.
The aim is to double the group’s size with investment of £150m to £200m over the next five years.
The home in Holt will have 66 luxury en-suite bedrooms and fabulous facilities; it will be set in two acres of landscaped gardens.
The project, spearheaded by Kingsley’s nationally renowned project team, including award-winning architects Condy Lofthouse and planning consultants Bidwells, is set to generate more than 100 jobs.
It has been announced after extensive consultation with local stakeholders.
Muj Malik, Kingsley’s chief investment officer, said: “We have had a positive response from local stakeholders. It is important for us and our future residents that the home becomes a central part of the community.
“It has always been our ambition to bring the Kingsley brand to the affluent market town of Holt which embodies everything that is wonderful about north Norfolk. We are proud to be delivering a luxury home fitting for the community.
“The home will have easy access to the town centre by footpaths and cycleways and there is a handy bus service.”
The aim is for the home in Hempstead Road to be ready for its first residents by autumn 2022.
A spokesman for Holt Town Council said: “The council welcomes the proposed new care home off Hempstead Road, which will provide much needed care for the elderly in our community, as well as creating many jobs for local people.”
Daya Thayan, CEO of Kingsley, rated a top 20 large care home group by review site carehome.co.uk, said: “As well as setting the standard for elderly care we are passionate about making a positive contribution to the communities in which we operate.
“This home will generate well-paid jobs from senior managers and nurses to chefs, support workers, maintenance and housekeepers.”
Kingsley is to gain a further 200 beds in the coming weeks through the opening of its 66-bedroom Brackley Care Home, a £12m project in the Northamptonshire market town of Brackley, and the acquisition of two existing luxury homes in the North West and Norfolk.
It will shortly be submitting plans for luxury nursing homes in Olney, Buckinghamshire and Norwich, in Norfolk. Throughout the pandemic, the company has won plaudits for its strong leadership, supporting residents’ families, staff and local communities in countless ways.
Mr Thayan has been rated a top 10 UK CEO by Glassdoor for his handling of the crisis.
