Perseus Land and Developments, the developer of bespoke care homes, retirement and residential accommodation for the later living sector, in collaboration the Barwood Property 2017 Fund, has successfully obtained planning consent for a 64 bedroom nursing home on a former Wyevale Garden Centre site in Weybridge.
The site, which was acquired unconditionally in 2019, occupies a prime location between the private St George’s Hill residential estate and the renown Whitely Retirement Village, which is home to around five hundred older people.
This is the first of several schemes where Perseus has subdivided the bed spaces into ‘households’ of eight, each with their own, independent kitchen and lounge. It is sincerely hoped this will engender a sense of ‘family living’, that residents can be grouped together according to their healthcare needs, age-group and/or hobbies and interests, and that it will be much easier to isolate individual ‘households’ and bedrooms should the threat of Covid-19 continue.

Duncan Ford, managing director said, “It is hugely pleasing to have secured planning permission to redevelop this Green Belt site for a much-needed, dementia-led nursing home. We are all terribly excited to see this scheme get built out and make a big difference to the quality of life for local people living with dementia and other conditions. Expect to see more along similar lines from us in the near future.”
