Hallmark Care Homes has secured planning consent with help from national planning and development consultant, Turley, for a luxury 79-bed care home in Bath, Somerset.

The 1.3-acre site in Frome Road has been purchased by Hallmark, which is planning to develop a new residential, dementia and nursing care home in keeping with the local area.

To be built by Savista Developments, the state-of-the-art facility which will feature a café, cinema, hairdressers, therapy room, a wellness suite, winter and roof garden, library and a mixture of spacious en-suite bedrooms and suites.

It will also have a specially-designed dementia community with a centralised activity hub which will include an additional hair salon, a reminiscence lounge, and activity room.

Outside there will be a wildlife refuge, courtyard, and landscaped gardens.

Chairman of Hallmark Care Homes and managing director of Savista Developments, Avnish Goyal, said: “We are delighted to have secured planning permission for this wonderful facility that will be an asset to the community and local residents.

“The home will have a number of innovative ideas and new features that we are looking to showcase when it opens in late 2021.”

Director at Turley, Phil Jones, added: “Redeveloping the currently-underutilised site for elderly and dementia residents will bring it back into purposeful use and the proposals will deliver economic, social and wider environmental benefits for the community.”
