Hallmark secures planning consent for Bath care home



Family-run and award-winning care provider, 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 on Frome Road has been purchased by Hallmark who will create a brand-new residential, dementia and nursing care home in keeping with the local area to be built by Savista Developments.

The state-of-the-art development which will create 120 jobs, will feature a café, cinema, hairdressers, therapy room as well as a wellness suite, winter and roof garden and library as well as a mixture of spacious ensuite bedrooms and suites.

The new home 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.

Meanwhile outside there will be a wildlife refuge, a beautiful courtyard and landscaped gardens for residents and visitors to enjoy.

Chair 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.”

Managing Director at Hallmark Care Homes, Ram Goyal said: “I am extremely excited about this development. The luxurious home will provide residents with a tranquil and safe space they can be supported to live an active and fulfilled life.”

Director at Turley, Phil Jones said: “We are delighted to be part of the team working on this fantastic project supporting Hallmark Care Homes which will provide much needed high-quality care accommodation in Bath. Redeveloping the currently underutilised site for elderly and dementia residents will bring the site back into purposeful use and the proposals will deliver economic, social and wider environmental benefits for the community.”

Turley provided planning and heritage and townscape services for the project. Construction will commence in April 2020 with the development scheduled to open its doors to its first residents in late 2021.

The development will be the Billericay-based care group’s 24th care home.
