Dittons Road will be the site for the new car home SUS-210331-114731001

Grafton Land and Property sold the plot in Dittons Road to Barchester Healthcare.

The new 44,000 sq. ft. building has already been granted planning permission by Wealden council and will offer a host of facilities for residents, including a salon and cinema.

Tony Cole at Grafton Land and Property said, “This deal forms part of a nationwide programme delivering opportunities for modern new build nursing homes - there will be twice as many people aged 85 and over in England in 2030 than there were in 2010.

“It’s vital that homes such as this with large en-suite bedrooms, hairdressers, cinema, laundry and self-contained areas with their own dining rooms and lounges are developed in order to provide excellent care in attractive settings.”
