The care village will provide 195 supported living units – 34 one bed and 161 two bed – a 60-bed care home and 34 respite hotel suites, as well as medical support facilities, function rooms, health and wellbeing Spa retreat, leisure facilities and offices.

There will also be a restaurant, museum charting the site’s history and military links, café and a new promenade, improved coastal defence measures, gardens and underground parking.

The care village is designed to provide the freedom to live independently, with the reassurance that, should the need arise, there is instant access to a flexible, tailored, care and support network on site.

The scheme comprises a range of accommodation with care and support and the option of moving to the care home should an individual’s care needs become larger.
