Melton Mowbray looks for architect to explore care-home redevelopment

Melton Mowbray
  • Comment

Melton Borough Council is seeking an architect to consider ways of redeveloping an existing care home within the town of Melton Mowbray in north Leicestershire

The winner of the estimated £80,000 contract will deliver a feasibility study exploring the potential regeneration of Gretton Court.

The traditional brick and block structure, constructed in the mid-1980s, contains 40 flats arranged in an H-shaped floor plan.

According to the contract notice: ‘The county council has already decided that the present facilities do not meet the minimum requirements for an extra care scheme in the medium-to-longer term, due in part to shared bathing facilities and the standards of the kitchens.

‘Gretton Court needs investment, either to fulfil an upgraded role providing extra care units; or, if Gretton Court cannot be redeveloped to modern standards as a viable extra care unit, to redevelop the premises as a sheltered scheme.’

The study will identify options to transform Gretton Court into a new extra care facility, and will produce a concept model showing the potential number of units that could be constructed on the site.

The architect will also be asked to consider developing ancillary amenities such as a gym, as well as investigating potential funding options.

The deadline for applications is 30 September.
