Plans submitted for new care home in Penicuik

Morrison Community Care Group has submitted plans for a new care home in Penicuik.

Set within a wider housing development presently being delivered by a national housebuilder, proposals for Greenlaw Luxury Suites comprise a 56-bedroom property that will offer residential, dementia and nursing services, as well as a range of amenities and landscaped grounds for elderly residents.

A small retail unit will also be created, which will be taken forward by an identified retailer.

Greenlaw has been developed in partnership with Glasgow-based contractor CCG and designed by Holmes Miller architects.

If granted approval, the project should provide upwards of 100 jobs.

Morrison Community Care managing director Paul Sokhi said: “Morrison Community Care has a long-standing reputation in the design and development of care homes.

“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's managing director, added: “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.”
