Avery nets planning permission for Northampton home

Avery Healthcare has been granted permission to build a 56-bed care home in Northampton.

Northampton Borough Council’s planning committee gave the green light to the plans at a virtual meeting on 7 July.

Avery will replace the demolished Cedarwood care home on Kettering Road with a three-storey development.

The proposed care home consists of a ground floor with 21 bedrooms, a first floor of 24 bedrooms, and second floor of 11 bedrooms.

The top floor will also include communal facilities including cinema space, hairdresser, treatment room, library, activity rooms and a private dining room.

Each wing features a large bathroom, designed to “feel like a spa while being fully accessible to all guests to add a sense of luxury to the building”, according to planning documents.

TDC Architects has been appointed by Avery to undertake the architectural services relating to the planned scheme.
