What this consultation is about

We're committed to providing the best possible care and accommodation for older people across the county.

We want to ensure there's a good mix of high quality accommodation for residents and we've been investing in new developments and upgrading our homes to support our ageing population.

However, not all our homes can be upgraded to a standard we think people expect and deserve.

The care provided by staff at Hazelwood is of the highest quality, but the building itself does not meet the standards we provide in many of our other, more modern residential homes.

The costs involved in repairing the home, combined with refurbishment costs and loss of income while the work is being done may not represent best value for the council or for local taxpayers.

That's why we're reluctantly proposing to close Hazelwood Care Home on Skeavingtons Lane, Cotmanhay.

We're now holding a 12-week consultation and in this time you will be able to tell us what you think about our proposal.

To help you to understand the proposals you can read the leaflet and Cabinet paper which are attached to this page.
