Birkdale care village
receives planning permission
PLANNING permission has been granted
for the building of a new Belong Care Village, in Birkdale, Southport.
With 5 existing villages and 2 under construction, Belong provide a range of
care, housing and support options for older people including independent
apartments and 24 hour care households. Each village offers a range of
facilities, some of which are open to the public including:- a bistro, hair salon,
exercise studio and function rooms.
The new Birkdale development will provide accommodation for more than 100
people, comprising a 3 storey, 74 bed care village, divided into 6 households,
as well as a 4 storey adjoining wing which will offer 30 1 and 2 bedroom
independent living apartments.
Tracy Paine, Operations Director for Belong, said:- "We are delighted to
have received planning permission to build a new care village in Southport.
Belong aims to offer the most supportive and calming environment possible to
customers, however complex their needs may become.
By opening our facilities to the wider community, we hope to create a service
that will also benefit the local communities as well as providing high quality
care services and accommodation for older people."
The new care village will take inspiration from its surroundings. Distinctive
design details and materials found in the West Birkdale Conservation Area will
be referenced throughout the building.
Work is expected to start on site by the end of 2017 and the village is set
to open in 2019. Please let us know what your views are on this
