The project, which is set to deliver 70 beds and 12 specialist care apartments, has received planning approval from Telford and Wrekin Council.

The scheme is part of the company’s strategy to expand into the health and social care sector.

Nick Sellman, group chief executive at Urban Village Group, said: “This is a really exciting development which will provide the Telford community with a wonderful new specialist care scheme. 

“We have placed considerable focus upon the environmental, social and governance strategies of our business. 

“We feel that our care offering for 2022 will make considerable steps towards our achievement of this.

“We have recruited a highly experienced care delivery team to ensure our developments meet the highest standards. 

“Our care homes have been carefully designed to ensure those who live there can enjoy an excellent quality of life and be part of an incredible community.”

Urban Village Healthcare has recently begun the conversion of former council offices in Staffordshire into supported living apartments for people with complex needs.

Prior to this, it announced its plans for a purpose-built nursing home scheme in Wigan featuring 66 en-suite rooms and communal facilities.

Adam Faulkner, executive director at Urban Village Group, added: “All the statistics indicate that there is a growing demand for high quality care home facilities right across the country, and we intend to play a significant role in helping to meet that demand, starting in Wigan and Telford.”
