A 70-bedroom care home will be built on the grounds of the Liff Hospital in Dundee under newly lodged plans.

Revised proposals submitted by ADP on behalf of Liff Care Development Ltd call for the demolition of the nursery already in place on South Drive with the care home built in its place.

The developer, which is owned by Consensus Capital Group, has said the new facility will be divided into three different sections for residents with various needs, including severe dementia.

These areas will consist of eight to 10 bedrooms and living and dining areas which will all be served by 24-hour care.

While some of the buildings which form part of the old hospital are listed, they will not require any work during the construction process, and no consent application is included. The site will come with car parking spaces for 35 vehicles including four disabled bays and bike racks.

In a design statement, ADP wrote: “Each residential wing is set under a pitched roof with north-south gable ends reflecting the Liff hospital principle elevation facing the site.

“Bedroom dormers are set into the perimeter elevations with an alternative bedroom elevation facing the internal garden producing an asymmetric gable elevation. The linking east-west block is kept to a flat roof, reducing the bulk of the elevation facing the Liff apartments as well as potentially allowing for the incorporation of south-facing PV’s.”
