Warwick care development given the green light

Posted on 22 August 2011

Older adults choosing a care home in Warwick will have more options thanks to the construction of a new development.

Warwick District Council has given the go-ahead for a scheme which will provide 42 new homes for the elderly.

The local authority had already approved the awarding of a contract for the new development to Housing 21.

It is designed to allow older people to continue to live independently, with each self-contained two-bedroom apartment encompassing its own front door.

Construction of the unit will begin later this year and take around 12 months to complete.

Councillor Izzi Seccombe, who holds the council's portfolio for Adult, Health and Community Services commented: "We want to give people greater choice about how they live in later life and this is the sort of accommodation we want to provide across the county."

This follows news that Rutland County Council has granted outline planning permission for an Oakham care home, reports the Rutland & Stamford Mercury.
