We are delighted to announce the approval of plans by East Suffolk Council for our exciting care home development in Oulton Broad.
The development in Gorleston Road, Oulton Broad, has been planned to modern environmental standards and will provide 32 beautifully appointed bedrooms, vaulted ceiling dining rooms and lounges, a stylish café and a hair and beauty salon.
The first-floor lounge will open on to a terrace overlooking a beautiful courtyard.
Landscaped grounds will include a sensory garden and an ecology area designed to promote biodiversity.
There will be hotel quality dining facilities with silver service to enhance the meal-time experience.
First-class laundry facilities will be provided while staff will benefit from the highest standard of changing rooms and showers.
Kingsley Healthcare CEO Daya Thayan said: “We have worked closely with local councillors, planners and the local community and are delighted to present this scheme for a beautiful boutique care home that will define luxury care offering.
“It will create a further 100 jobs in the local area.” He added that the scheme for Lavender Cottage was among a number of projects under way or planned as part of Kingsley’s Vision 2025.
“We have committed £150m to build new facilities and reconfigure existing services; we will be using the best materials and buildings will feature all the new energy technologies, and other ESG additions, to ensure environmentally friendly developments.”
Kingsley Healthcare Operations director Debbie McGovern said: “It has been our goal to deliver the best care facilities for Oulton Broad and we are delighted to be able to bring this scheme to fruition in the months ahead.”
