A 36-bedroom care facility on the trust’s existing estate aims to meet an increasing demand for care facilities and accommodation in the area.
Parkhaven Trust, which specialises in providing services for people living with dementia, has lodged plans for a 21,500 sq ft facility on its 36-acre estate on Liverpool Road South in Maghull.
The application site was previously occupied by a single-storey building that was demolished in 2012 and has been vacant since.
Communal spaces within the development will include two flexible lounge/dining rooms, a quiet lounge, a day room and a craft room.
P4 Planning is advising Parkhaven Trust on its proposals and a decision is expected in early January 2022.
Seddon Construction is lined up to build the scheme and Condy Lofthouse is the architect.
P4 Planning director Gillian Worden said: “Parkhaven Trust is a well-established, trusted member of the local community and is a major local employer. This development will create new jobs, not only during construction, but long-term opportunities for Sefton residents.
“The proposed care home will help meet the evident demand for care facilities in Maghull and the wider area. Sefton’s aging population is set to increase in the coming decades and our proposal will meet this high local demand, providing local people with quality care accommodation.”
Parkhaven Trust operates three other care facilities from the site, which opened in 1988.
