Pannal - Press Release



Work starts in April on building a new road and road junction at Pannal to enable the redevelopment of the former Dunlopillo Industrial Site.

The road will provide access to a new state of the art dementia care facility being built by the award-winning dementia care specialists, Vida Healthcare, as well as a planned residential development on the site.

A new roundabout will be built to the south of Spacey Houses and the site is to be levelled to allow gentle contours down the hillside sweeping into the new development, which is located behind Stratstone BMW.

The route has an approved landscaping and lighting design for the roadside and incorporates the relocation of environmentally sensitive grasslands.

The access road is being built after consultation with North Yorkshire County Council in order to provide the safest and least obtrusive thoroughfare to the new development and will be finished later this year (October 2016).

The scheme is being project managed by Projex Building SolutionsPrincipal Contractor for the road is A E Yates Ltd. from Lostock, Bolton whilst GMI Construction are responsible for the main building works on the care facility.

Vida Grange (Pannal) will provide 124 beds across and is the second facility for Harrogate-based Vida Healthcare.

Vida's first care facility, Vida Hall, which Projex also advised on and which opened in Starbeck in January 2013, became the first specialist dementia facility in the UK to achieve an outstanding award by the Care Quality Commission last year.

Last month, Vida was named double winners at the national Skills for Care Awards receiving the award for 'best employer of fewer than 250 staff' and the 'winner of winners overall award'.

Commencement of the works is 25th April 2016 and a "Roadworks Information Drop-in" session will be held with A E Yates Ltd. at Pannal Memorial Hall between 17:00hrs-19:00hrs to discuss any queries or concerns.
