New Care secures planning approval in Grappenhall


Leading development-led care home operator New Care has received planning approval for a new £11million care facility in Warrington.

Helping to address the increasing shortfall of quality beds in the area, the award-winning Altrincham-based operator has received consent for a state-of-the-art 70-bed care home on the site of the former Springbrook pub, off Knutsford Road, close to the centre of Grappenhall.

Expertly designed, the privately-funded ‘new generation’ care facility will be purpose-built to deliver the highest standards of care in a comfortable and stylish home-from-home environment.

Respecting its leafy surroundings and making a positive contribution to its gateway location, it will boast fully furnished bedrooms with en suite wet rooms, elegant communal lounges and dining rooms, spa-assisted bathrooms, a hair salon, nail bar and beautifully landscaped front and rear gardens.

Above all, it will provide an outstanding clinical offering including residential, nursing and dementia care, with all residents receiving individual person-centred compassionate care that is enhanced by a meaningful programme of daily activities and excursions from a permanent and highly skilled professional team.

Chief operating officer at New Care, Cath Fairhurst, commented: “It is incredibly exciting to receive planning permission for this essential new care facility in Grappenhall and we are delighted that our proposal for the scheme was passed by unanimous vote at the Council’s planning meeting.

“With the care crisis continuing to escalate across the UK, we remain committed to bringing our award-winning facilities to areas where there is an established need and we look forward to getting started on site in Grappenhall.”

New Care’s sister company, McGoff Construction, will build the home and is gearing up to commence work later this year.  Contributing both socially and economically to the local community, the facility will also create employment opportunities requiring approximately 80 full time equivalent jobs across a variety of different roles.

New Care worked with Manchester-based law firm Beyond Corporate on the deal.  Real estate partner at Beyond Corporate, Owen McKenna, said: ““It was great to once again work alongside the experienced team at New Care in securing the site for what is another much needed, modern care home development – particularly as purpose-built care homes represent a small percentage of the available beds for long-term care. We have worked with New Care since its inception, and within the last 12 months have secured another six sites for them, with more in the pipeline. We are proud to continue our long-standing relationship with New Care and congratulate them on this very positive outcome.”

New Care is one of the UK’s leading care home providers.  Its portfolio of purpose-built ‘new generation’ care facilities is fast gaining an enviable reputation for outstanding care that is second to none.  For further information please visit
