Westward Care who run Pennington Court care home on Hunslet Hall Road in Beeston have bought the land next door which includes the derelict shopping centre and car park.

As we reported here Pennington Court was recently rated as ‘Outstanding’ after an inspection by the Care Quality Commission, it was the first home in Leeds to be graded Outstanding. The flats are designed for older people and people with disabilities who need care, but want to live independently.

The plans are for 36 1-bed flats, 22 2-bed flats, a guest flat and a staff flat. The accommodation will be arranged in two blocks over four storeys. The shop currently on site will be retained.

You can view the plans and speak to staff from Westward Care at the Church of the Nazarene, Hunslet Hall Road on Tuesday 27 November between 4-7pm.

  1. Congregate care for disabled people looks very much like an institution. This is a very alarming and backward step for disabled people in Leeds.
