Dementia Care and Nursing Home, Millisle

The proposal is for a state-of-the-art 60 bed dementia care and nursing home; the first of its kind in Northern Ireland. It will not only provide specialist care and private living accommodation for residents but also other uses to encourage social interaction in a safe and pleasant environment.

Issues Encountered

• The site is located in the countryside and so a ‘need’ for its location will have to be demonstrated.

• The proposed design will have to be sympathetic to the countryside location also, in terms of height, scaling and materials to be used.

• Ecological issues associated with the site include a bat roost and invasive plant species. The access into the site also needs to be improved.

Our Involvement

We were engaged by the client to advise on potential planning issues and assist with the design team selection process. We were lead agents in developing a detailed design for the proposal and managing the planning process from pre-application through to decision, including coordinating all specialist input and advice.
