A NEW energy saving care home in Brampton is just a few months away from completion.

Developers, LNT Care, have told John Healey, MP for Wentworth and Dearne, that work on the former fire station site on Knollbeck Lane is on schedule and is due to be finished by the end of March.

The two-storey care home will provide 66 rooms as well as 25 parking spaces, a library, garden and cinema for residents.

John, and local councillor Denise Lelliott, were recently shown around the site by LNT Care’s regional director Anthony Thompson and development director Nick Broadbent.

John said: “It’s great to see that work on the care home is almost complete and that developers are looking to finish on the site at the end of March.

“What’s also important is that a former derelict site is being brought back into use and creating local jobs in and around Brampton.

“The developers have said they’ll be looking to start local recruitment soon after the building work is finished.
