Residents are being invited to take part in a public consultation for plans for a new care home near Hatton Park.

Care home company Belmont Healthcare are looking to potentially build a new care home on land off Birmingham Road.

According to the public consultation documents, the proposal is for a 75-bed care home and there would be a public footpath created to 'give the residents in Hatton Park access to Hatton Locks'.

Proposed vehicle and pedestrian access to the site would be from the roundabout on Birmingham Road and there would be around 28 parking spaces for use by both staff and visitors to the care home.

Initially a public consultation was due to take place in March for the plans but because of the pandemic this was postponed.

Now the care home company has reorganised this so that it can take place virtually.

Adam Hutchison, managing director at Belmont Healthcare said: "Despite the current pandemic and the fact we are unable to hold a normal consultation we have chosen to engage the local community in the best way possible and set up an online web based consultation and a webinar to discuss the potential planning application.

"I would like to personally assure local residents this is a very important scheme for us as I feel this area of land has great potential to offer people.

"I was born and bred in Warwickshire and live locally, this area of land is defunct and offers little by the way of natural beauty.

"We plan to offer something for the local residents to enjoy, while we understand the anxieties from any new development - the area would offer an amazing opportunity for those in need of care, most importantly to have a wonderful surrounding area in which to improve their well-being and experience in later life.

"Something as an organisation we are passionate about offering.

"It is important to note that we are not a developer, we are a care company working through the whole process so this is not simply a planning permission application, it's the whole picture through to operation."

Members of the public can comment on the plans until Friday July 19 and then the company will be holding a webinar on Monday July 20 where they will be answering questions live.

People can sign up to take part in the webinar via the website.
