Muller Secures New Care Home and Jobs for Clitheroe

Muller Property Group has secured outline planning consent for the creation of a new residential care home in Clitheroe, in the heart of the Ribble Valley.

Ribble Valley Borough Council has unanimously approved Muller’s proposal for the 1.1 acre site, which is located to the north of Pendle Road, and within walking distance from the town centre. Existing commercial properties on the former Pendle Mill site will start to be cleared to make way for a luxury residential care home. Businesses located on this site, such as Worthington Brougham Furniture Ltd, will stay open until a later date in the construction process.

A spokesperson for Worthington Brougham Furniture Ltd assured that they “are currently in the process of expanding and will be opening a new showroom in Chorley later this year (2023), while our Clitheroe showroom will relocate to a warehouse outlet in January 2024.”

Meeting the needs of the UK’s growing elderly population, the 3-storey care home will provide 70 spacious ensuite bedrooms.  Enhancing the wellbeing of residents, the property will include the provision of a café/bistro, cinema, hair and nail salon, plus private dining rooms. Communal day spaces are also included within the design, facilitating sociable activities that encourage mental and physical stimulation.

The development features a large, secure garden for residents, with new landscaping to enhance and improve local biodiversity, together with the existing mature trees.

Colin Muller, Chief Executive of Muller Property Group said: “It’s no secret that the UK is facing a housing crisis and remains in desperate need of suitable, modern accommodation for our elderly population.  We are therefore delighted that Ribble Valley Borough Council has approved our proposals for this site in Clitheroe.  This care home will provide premium accommodation for residents with an array of on-site facilities, forming a new community within Clitheroe.  Active residents can enjoy the benefits of living just 800 metres from the town centre and we look forward to bringing this development forward.”

The completed care home facility is expected to create around 70 full-time jobs across a variety of disciplines and roles, including nurses and carers, managerial, maintenance and other ancillary roles.

Headquartered in Cheshire, Muller Property Group is a leading land and development company and has regional teams across the UK.  The company has a highly experienced management team, skilled in identifying and sourcing land and development opportunities.
