Not-for-profit aged care provider The Whiddon Group will build a new two-storey aged care home and expand and refurbish the existing Redhead Road 60-bed home.

The company said the project would create an extra 115 aged care places, taking its total capacity to 175 residents. It will also add 36 parking spaces to the existing 12 on site.

Whiddon chief executive Chris Mamarelis said the project would deliver benefits to the region.

“There is a need for additional residential aged care places for older people in the region and this new facility will help to cater for current and future aged care needs,” he said.

“It will also bring new jobs in nursing care, hospitality and hotel services, and a significant investment in the local community.”

The Whiddon Group application was unanimously approved by the Hunter Joint Regional Planning Panel at a meeting inJune.

It was subject to more than 30 conditions of consent. The company subsequently sought to vary several of those instructions including the requirement for the company to pay developer contributions.

The firm sought an exemption for providing social housing or a delay until an occupation certificate was issued. The push was denied, with any future application expected to return to the planning panel.

In its decision the panel stated it considered there were “sufficient environmental planning groups” to support an exception to a maximum height of one storey imposed on the site.

“Regard was given to the sound site planning, generous setbacks and appropriate relationship and scale transition to surrounding development,” the panel’s decision states.

The project also includes a specialist dementia unit, a clubhouse and a cafe.

The expansion is due for completion in mid-2020.

The Redhead Road home made headlines in May after Doris Jones, 96, received a visit from Lucy the pony as part of a relationship-based care program.
