The healthcare and nursing home developer has secured brownfield sites for two care home developments worth a combined £13m.
One development, a £6.5m nursing home on a 40,000 sq ft site in Buxton, will be built on the former Haddon Hall site and will comprise 75 beds.
The second, at Thirlestaine Hall in Cheltenham, will be a 63-bed site spanning 34,000 sq ft, and is also valued at £6.5m. This development is also part of a scheme providing 24 assisted living units and 60 residential units.
Both projects are expected to create a combined 136 jobs, and will be operated and managed by independent care home company Porthaven.
Castlemead business development director Tony Cole said: “These latest projects have formed part of a major expansion in the care home sector for Castlemead, which is a success we are extremely proud of.
“The fact that local residents are happy for the developments to go ahead is testament to the quality of the scheme, an effective public consultation and the collaborative approach taken by Castlemead and the local authority.”
