Morrison Community Care Group secures planning approval for care home

By Shalini Nair

Developer Morrison Community Care Group has secured planning approval from FIFE Council to build a new luxury care home in Dalgety Bay, Scotland.

This luxury home care project, which has been designed by Holmes Miller Architects, will feature up to 68 private bed spaces.

The plan submitted to the council involves transforming a vacant property on Harbour Way.

Following the completion of construction, the project will provide residential, nursing and dementia care services for people more than the age of 65.

This project will offer amenities such as private dining rooms, private landscaped gardens, a cinema and a champagne bar.

Morrison Community Care Group managing director Paul Sokhi said, “Working in partnership with CCG (Scotland), Morrison Community Care build quality care facilities, which promote the rights of the individual whilst ensuring privacy, dignity and respect. We design our developments from the ground up to ensure that every need of the resident is met and we are delighted that we can now bring our expertise to Dalgety Bay.
