New community under construction in Leicestershire that could soon serve shops, restaurants, medical center and care home. The New Lubbesthorpe development near Thorpe Astley may soon have its own local center after a full planning application has been submitted to Blabye District Council.
The proposed facilities will be located off Tay Road, to the west of the community’s new primary school. Outline planning permission – which approves a scheme in principle, with concrete details ironed out at a later date – has already been approved by the Borough Council for two new buildings on the site.Read:Brain Study Shows How Fentanyl Kills | Health, Medicine and Fitness
The local center will occupy one building, with the potential for shops, including a convenience store, and cafes or restaurants to make their home on the ground floor, the latest proposal reveals. Developer Charterpoint Ltd said it had already gained interest from “proven local operators”.

The second floor hosts the community’s new medical center. There will be six GP rooms, five consulting rooms and four nursing rooms, although if the medical center is not extended across the entire floor, the remaining space can be made available as workspace.
Forest House Medical Center, which currently serves Braunston Town, is expected to move into the building, leaving the Park Drive buildings behind. The move angered Brownstone residents, who were “terrified at the prospect of missing out on their doctors’ surgery”.Read:Drag Race’s Mo Heart on Ignoring Toxic Beauty Standards and Loving You
However, the GP said the facilities at the current site are limited. They feel that they are unable to provide the range of care and services that some of our patients require.
The plan shows that the second building will be built as a care home. The three-storey residence will consist of 66 bedrooms, divided over the two lower floors. The upper floor will house staff facilities, a kitchen and laundry.
A new estate road will also be constructed from Tay Road to allow access to the site and its buildings. There will be 30 parking spaces attached to the care home – 16 to the front for visitors and 14 to the west for staff. There will also be 72 places attached to the local centre.
Charterpoint Ltd has also proposed that the existing bus service be routed to the local centre, if planning permission is granted, becoming a ‘destination’ within the estate. They added that there is the possibility of setting up a drop off package and a pick up point on site as well.
There are currently no plans for a third lot on the ground. However, the documents said discussions about its future use are continuing with potential operators.Read:A Cause for Plaque Rupture in Stroke Identified
