Councillor Desai said:

I am delighted to see the progress of this important development. This is exactly the type of facility we need in this borough. Our older people deserve the highest quality services and when built, this care home will offer exactly that.”



Councillor Groves said:

I am very pleased to hear the facility will be very much part of the community with local residents able to enjoy many of the site’s amenities. I was pleased to hear further details about the plans for the memorial garden. As a ward councillor, I believe it is very important the history of the site is recognised, remembered and retained in some way. I am pleased the builders will incorporate that history in the new facility.”
