A former children’s home which lay derelict for years in Nantwich has now been sold.

Cheshire East Council’s strategic property company Engine of the North, has finalised a deal to sell the former Redsands Children’s home in Willaston.

Subject to planning, Richmond Care Villages will transform the site into a specialist centre of excellence in dementia care.

The new facility will create 80 jobs and operate as a satellite campus to Richmond’s existing care village in Nantwich.

Councillor Ainsley Arnold, said: “This is a welcome opportunity for a respected care organisation to provide services to some of our most vulnerable residents.”

Councillor Jamie Macrae, chairman of Engine of the North said: “We’re pleased to have exchanged contracts, for a development that will bring the site back into economic use and create new jobs locally.”

A planning application for the new care facility has been submitted.

Under the plans, Cheshire East would retain ownership of the land to the east of the former home, which includes a pond and football pitch.

The existing public footpath which runs along the eastern boundary of the site will be maintained.
