Gedling Borough Council Approve Plans for 66 Bed Care Home at Teal Park

Work will start later this year on a 12-month programme to create a state-of-the-art care home at a new £30 million mixed-use site in Nottingham.

Gedling Borough Council has approved plans from LNT Care Developments to create a 66-bedroom development for people with residential and residential dementia care needs.

The complex will be part of a 20-acre site at Teal Park off the Colwick Loop Road in Netherfield which is being developed by Warwick-based AC Lloyd alongside Henry Davidson Developments (HDD).

The go ahead from the planning department means work will start in November with the aim to open towards the end of 2020.

Fifty full-time jobs will be created at the care home which will include a cinema, garden room, library, hairdressing salon, coffee shop and tea shop and 66 ensuite bedrooms with wet rooms.

Nick Broadbent, development director at LNT Care Developments, said this was excellent news for the community in Netherfield.

“Our other care homes in Arnold, Bulwell and Newark have been extremely well received because of the high standard of our care and the homes we have created,” he said.

“Receiving planning permission from Gedling Borough Council means we can start enabling works on site this month before we start to build the infrastructure.

“Work will really start in earnest in November and our building programme usually takes 12 months since everything is to a high specification.

“As work progresses, we will start to promote our job vacancies since we will be looking to fill a range of posts.”

The care home will be part of a mixed-use development containing a pub/restaurant, food store, ancillary retail units and children’s nursery as well as a 50,000 sq ft trade park for up to 12 units and 145,000 sq ft of employment units across seven premises if these plans are given the green light.

Mark Edwards, managing director of AC Lloyd Commercial, said this was the first development to receive full planning permission at Teal Park.

He said: “Teal Park is a really exciting venture for AC Lloyd Commercial and it has sparked a great deal of interest from local and national operators.

“We were approached early on by LNT Care Developments and it is fantastic that planning approval has been secured since their home will provide high-quality care for the residents who will be very much part of the community in Netherfield.”

Scott Davidson, managing director of Nottingham and Birmingham based HDD which is delivering the project for AC Lloyd, said: “LNT Care Developments are a first-class operator, they are well respected in the sector and we are delighted to welcome them to Teal Park.

“This is the first step in bringing forward a range of community facilities that will serve the existing and new residents of Netherfield and we look forward to announcing further occupiers in the near future.”

HDD record of delivery is second to none

Henry Davidson Developments (HDD) has completed the final letting at its £8.5m mixed use district centre at Newton Leys, Milton Keynes.  Cats Protection completed the letting at this popular location only weeks after HDD reached Practical Completion demonstrating again HDDs ability to deliver vibrant and thriving District Centres.

A specialist in creating mixed use developments for more than 25 years, the HDD development comprises an ASDA superstore, six shops, day nursery, care home and pub.   Working in partnership with housebuilder Taylor Wimpey the development provides community facilities for the Newton Leys area where more than 800 homes have been built.


Care home disposal is final piece in HDD’s Lawley Village jigsaw

A decade after work first began at a major mixed-use development in Shropshire, commercial property developer Henry Davidson Developments (HDD) has announced it has disposed of the final plot.

LNT Care Homes has purchased the key 1.2 acre plot at Lawley Village, Telford, and is expected to start construction of its 66-bed facility within the next few days.. The care home will  be operational in Q3 2018.

HDD commenced construction of the £30 million district centre development in 2007. The scheme comprises a 40,500 sq ft Morrisons supermarket, a children’s day nursery, a Marston’s Inns and Taverns public house and retail occupiers including Subway, Greggs and Barnardo’s. HDD has also delivered 23 apartments and 16 town houses, and an extra care facility for Sanctuary.

Scott Davidson, managing director of Birmingham-based HDD, said: “This has been a major commitment for us since work first started in 2007. It has been very successful and well received right from the start of our 10-year association with Lawley Village.

“To have sold the final plot to LNT Care Homes represents the very last piece of the jigsaw for us. We are very proud of the facilities we have provided for the people of Telford. The district centre is a great example of what we do well; developing great schemes which attract well known retailers and local businesses to ensure the community is well served.”

The Lawley Village site, located just off the M54 motorway, covers more than 330 acres of land. The entire project is expected to be completed in 2028, across 11 phases, with more than 3,500 homes and both primary and secondary schools. Telford & Wrekin Borough Council first approved plans for the £600 million development in 2005.



Plans to regenerate Newcastle-under-Lyme town centre in a bid to boost shopping and create hundreds of new jobs have been submitted.

The borough council says they include proposals for new shops, parking and student accommodation on the former Sainsbury’s site.

The plans, submitted by Henry Davidson Developments and U+I will see work begin in mid 2018.

As part of the scheme, council and police staff working in the current Civic Offices on Merrial Street will move to a new hub this autumn.
