Rotherwood Group has obtained planning permission to construct a purpose-built luxury care home in Colwall, Herefordshire.

Nestled on the western side of the Malvern Hills, on the border of Herefordshire and Worcestershire, the build will be located on Primeswell Close off Walwyn Road, on a brownfield site in the stunning historic village of Colwall. The home will provide 60 Residential and Nursing beds to support the demand for care in the region with its ageing population, whilst creating approximately 50 jobs in the local area. Work on the build is due to start by early 2023 with the view to opening in Spring 2024. 
The build is funded through Target Healthcare and will be constructed by LNC Property Developments. Designed by Lawrence and Finley Architects, the home will offer state-of-art facilities whilst its architectural features will echo that of Rotherwood’s other purpose-built care home, Roden Hall, in Shropshire.  
Kristian Lawrence, the Architect from Lawrence and Finley Architects, commented:
“From the outset, Rotherwood’s brief was to design a care home which would enhance the lives of residents living within, whilst also respecting the surrounding area and retaining the views of the Malvern Hills. The home will house top-class amenities including an at-home bar and cinema room and maximise views of the open countryside. We look forward to seeing the build progress”.
