Hallmark acquires site to develop care home

The site will be Hallmark's 24th development

Hallmark Care Homes has exchanged contracts on a two-acre site in Woodford Green, Greater London.

The site has been bought from the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association after a competitive bidding process, to develop a residential, nursing and dementia care home.

Over the coming months, the operator will be inviting the local community for its feedback on the proposed care home, ahead of the submission of a planning application next year.

‘The demand for new care homes continues to rise as people are living longer and needing greater support, and we are very excited to announce our latest acquisition of a site in Woodford Green,’ said Hallmark Care Homes managing director Aneurin Brown.

‘We are proposing to develop an outstanding, high-quality care home with luxury features such as a cinema, therapy room, and wellness centre which will help meet the growing demand for specialist care in the area.’

The development will be Hallmark’s 24th home and is being built by sister company Savista Developments.
