Councillors will consider the future of Haxby Hall older persons’ home when they meet on Thursday 25 January.
Following a consultation with residents, relatives and staff at Haxby Hall, the council’s Executive will be asked to note the feedback and make a decision on whether to transfer ownership and management of the care home to an independent sector provider, with the aim of securing its future and providing modern, improved facilities.
If the transfer of Haxby Hall is agreed councillors will also be asked to:
- Agree to procure a developer to take over Haxby Hall as a going concern with a commitment to delivering improved care facilities on the site.
- To dispose of the site of the care home in return for a capital receipt which will reinvested as part of the Older Persons’ Accommodation Programme.
- To procure a contract that will allow the council to purchase a specified number of beds at an agreeable rate.
In December 2016, Executive agreed to consult with residents, relatives and families on the option to seek a partner to take over the 49 bed care home, with a commitment to delivering improved care facilities.
