Plans lodged for 56-bed Penicuik care home

MORRISON Community Care Group (MCCG) has submitted plans for a new 56-bedroom care home site in Penicuik, Midlothian.

Set within a wider housing development currently being delivered, plans for Greenlaw Luxury Suites include residential, dementia, and nursing services as well as a range of amenities and landscaped grounds for residents over the age of 65.

A small retail unit will also be created to provide the local community with day-to-day essentials.

Greenlaw has been developed in partnership with contractor CCG (Scotland) and designed by Holmes Miller. If granted approval, the project has been tipped to provide upwards of 100 jobs.

Morrison Community Care MD, Paul Sokhi, said, “Morrison Community Care has a long-standing reputation in the design and development of care homes. We are one of the UK’s leading providers because we are passionate about providing the very highest standard of living and service possible and we hope to bring our expertise to Penicuik. Our work with CCG and Holmes Miller is sector-leading in Scotland and I am sure the plans will be welcomed by the local community.”

David Wylie, CCG (Scotland) MD, added, “With a growing ageing population, there is a growing demand for quality accommodation for the elderly in Scotland. CCG has worked in partnership with MCCG since 2017 and together we have led the delivery of care homes across the breadth of the country, creating over 200 beds with a further 68 beds currently under construction in Fife.

“We work together to combine our expertise in construction and care provision respectively that sets a benchmark for comfort, quality, and sustainability. If granted approval, we look forward to bringing forward Greenlaw Luxury Suites in 2023.”
