WORK on a new care complex could start early in the new year.
Healthcare and retirement living developer Larkpoint announced this week that work would soon begin on a 100 home care village and 60-bed care home in Oakham.
The project was given outline planning permission by Rutland County Council in January as part of the Hawksmead development Oakham North.
Larkpoint is working with Charterpoint Developments and Larkfleet Group to design and build the community.
It will be in the centre of the development between Oakham and Barleythorpe.
Hawksmead is expected to submit the planning application for its first phase of housing this month.
