We provide specialist planning advice for health and care schemes
Bell Cornwell has considerable experience of working on developments within the care sector. We have helped our clients secure planning permissions for a diverse range of projects including care villages, elderly and dementia care homes and assisted living accommodation.
As well as the need to address issues common to other forms of development, such as those relating to highways, landscape and amenity. The successful delivery of planning permissions for care schemes typically requires a strong understanding of a range of sector specific issues, for example those relating to need arguments, particular design and regulatory requirements and the potential impacts of the proposals on local healthcare and related provisions. Issues may also be raised in relation to matters such as land use class and the liability (or otherwise) for affordable housing and planning contributions, these being matters which can have important implications for scheme deliverability and viability.
Our experience means that we have a strong understanding of the issues which are likely to require attention and we are therefore well placed to provide our clients with the support they need to secure their objectives for care schemes.
Types of development:
- Care villages
- Elderly and dementia care homes
- Assisted living accommodation
