Avery Healthcare gets green light for Leicester care home

Avery Healthcare has received planning permission for an £8.5m care home in Aylestone, Leicester. The purpose-built care home is to be built on the site of two uncompleted apartment blocks that have stood empty for more than a decade. The home, which is expected to be completed in late 2020, will have a range of smaller lounges and dining rooms to all floors, an all-day café, cinema, hair salon and barbers, spa therapy room and landscaped gardens. All the spacious 60 bedrooms will have private en-suites and be furnished to a high standard with flat screen TVs. Some of the ground floor rooms will open out on to patio areas and the gardens.
