Barchester Healthcare buys premium Kent care home development site

Barchester Healthcare has acquired an Aspire LPP best-in-class care home development site in Tenterden, Kent, via Christie & Co.

Aspire LPP achieved planning consent for this 64-bed care home development following a proactive planning process with the local council resulting in a high-class contemporary design for the care home which will meet the demands of the local area.

The consented care home will benefit from en suite wet rooms to all bedrooms, café, hair salon, activity room, cinema, lounge and dining rooms, rooftop bar with summer lounge, balconies, and a screened roof garden.

Enclosed and landscaped gardens will have new planting and seating areas, providing residents with multiple areas to engage with the outdoor environment.

This premium home will be situated in a prominent roadside location off the A28 in easy access of the town of Tenterden, Kent. The historic town is situated on the eastern border of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Michael Lucas, Founder and Managing Director at Aspire LPP, commented, “Aspire LPP is delighted to have delivered this Tenterden care home development site, working with Barchester Healthcare. This development represents one in a pipeline of care home developments which Aspire LPP is delivering to the market during 2022 and beyond.

'We are proud to play a significant role in providing a best-in-class new care home to the Tenterden community. Aspire LPP is again demonstrating its ability to work at local level with the community and key local stakeholders to achieve a successful planning outcome in the care sector.”

Julian Burgess, land buyer at Barchester Healthcare, commented, “Barchester Healthcare are very pleased to be part of the successful planning application in Tenterden. We feel that we will be able to contribute hugely to the community with our proposed new care home.
