Essex transfers remaining homes


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

Specialist care sector consultants GLP have recently completed the transfer of three care properties on behalf of Essex County Council. The properties comprise the remaining three registered care homes for elderly people owned by Essex County Council – Goldsmiths (Harlow), Millard House (Bocking) and Queens Park Court (Billericay). The sites were transferred as part of the council’s plans to increase bed provision for elderly people in Essex. Goldsmiths was sold as a closed unit for care home development while Millard House and Queens Park Court, comprising two purpose built homes registered for 43 and 40 clients respectively, remain operational. The relationship between GLP and Essex County Council is long standing and this transfer represents the third and final tranche of care homes for elderly people. Past tender processes on behalf of the authority include the disposal of 11 homes in 2001/2002 to a variety of purchasers while the second phase saw the disposal of 10 homes in January 2005 to Excelcare.
