New community campus one step closer

FOLLOWING a series of positive meetings, Jewish Care is delighted to share with Essex Jewish News readers that they have now submitted their planning application to Redbridge Council for the development of a stunning £25 million state of the art care and community campus in Essex.

The exciting new development will be housed on the site of the current Redbridge Jewish Community Centre (RJCC), also known as Sinclair House.

It will comprise a community space which will house a centre for people living with dementia and a 66-bed care home, which the Jewish Care’s Vi & John Rubens House in Gants Hill will relocate to. The site will also house Jewish Care’s social work team, as well as providing areas for wider communal use.

After first sharing plans for this development with the community earlier this year, including on the front page of this newspaper, Jewish Care say they were thrilled with the level of support and enthusiasm they received.

After submitting the planning permission application, the charity then asked supporters and residents in the area to send in a letter of support for the development to the council.

Jewish Care chief executive Daniel Carmel-Brown told us: “We are delighted to have reached this stage and to have submitted a planning application. We know that from consultations with the community, our plans for this development have received wide support.

“We’re so grateful to those living in the Redbridge area for submitting letters of support to let the Council know just how much this new development is needed and would be valued by the community.”
