Work starts on 72-bed Lincoln care home with cinema, tavern and salon

Work will begin within the next two weeks.

Work is set to start this month on a brand new 72-bed residential care home on Long Leys Road on the edge of Lincoln.

Tanglewood Care Homes, an established family business which already runs five other care homes in Lincolnshire, expects to create between 50 and 60 new jobs at the new home.

Work will start within the next two weeks.

It will have a large, secure, landscaped garden as well as a café, cinema, tavern, hair salon and lounges.

The building work will be carried out by LNT Construction, a Leeds-based specialist in building care homes, and the development is due to open in February 2019.

The three-storey home will cater for elderly residential care, nursing care and dementia care residents.

A range of activities will be on offer to residents, including arts and crafts, entertainment, dancing, picnics, themed evenings, excursions and film nights.

City of Lincoln Council previously gave the development the go-ahead at a planning meeting on November 8.

Planning permission for a care home on the site of a former adult education centre had been granted by the council in 2014, but the design has since been altered so new planning consent was sought.

Tracy Ann Shelbourn, founder and Director of Tanglewood Care Homes said: “Our Lincoln care home is the start of a new and exciting journey for the company.

“Tanglewood has provided care, accommodation and employment to generations of Lincolnshire families.

“We are looking forward to welcoming our first residents and their families to Tanglewood in Lincoln in 2019.”
