The site is located near to the commercial centre of Hildenborough, with access onto both Tonbridge Road and Half Moon Lane, on a plot originally occupied by a car dealership.
The approved scheme provides a 75 bedroom care home over two and a half stories, together with a basement for the back of house services. Landscaped gardens will be provided with raised planters and fully accessible footpaths, including a variety of areas that are designed to stimulate residents’ senses.
The style of the care home is a contemporary take on the local vernacular, with the scale and character of the building blending well with the existing street scene.
The home utilises a palette of materials sympathetic to the locality, with the development of the site resulting in a significant improvement to the character of the town centre.
