Flintshire approves £16m care home
The 56-bedroom facility will be delivered on the former site of the Cottage Hospital off Cornist Road in Flint following unanimous approval at the county council’s planning committee meeting on Wednesday.
Architect Lovelock Mitchell designed the £16m project, which will be delivered by a joint venture between Flintshire County Council and Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.
The care home will reach four storeys at its highest point, providing a communal and dining area, as well as a 300 sq ft visitors lounge on each floor.
Residents will also have access to an 800 sq ft daycare, a 200 sq ft therapeutic room, and a 200 sq ft hair salon.
Outside, a memorial garden dedicated to the former Cottage Hospital will be created. The hospital closed down in 2013 and has since been demolished.
There will be 42 parking spaces provided behind the building. A covered cycle store will also be available with space for 10 bikes and two motorbikes.
The facility will replace the Croes Atti Residential Home off Prince Charles Avenue. The new home will see the number of beds available increase by 25.
Construction firm Wilmott Dixon is assisting with the redevelopment of the four-acre plot.
Also on the project team is landscape architect Tirlun Barr and transport consultant Flinders Chase.
