Derbyshire gives go-ahead for Oaklands scheme


Posted on October 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Birmingham-based, Glancy Nicholls Architects has gained planning permission for a £20m care home and extracare village in South Derbyshire.

Plans for the Oaklands development, which will form a focal point for older people’s care in Swadlincote, were recently approved by South Derbyshire District Council. Derbyshire County Council and Trident Housing Association came together to form a working partnership to develop the proposal which provides a 32-bed care home and 88 extracare apartments together with other community facilities.

Glancy Nicholls Architects initially released scheme proposals last year and have worked closely with the planning and highways authorities to reach a final approved design.
