The proposal to extend the Abbeyfield House care home to include specialist 17 extra care flats and 8 dementia care units is being recommended for approval. The proposal involves the demolition of 27 St Helen’s Road.
Officials are set to shun the objections made by 57 residents, the ward planning panel and local Ward Councillors. The objectors raise a wide range of issues including inadequate parking provision, overlooking, drainage, scale, massing, impact on the nearby children’s nursery and loss of open space.
Residents can attend the planning meeting which will discuss the plans. It takes place on Thursday 11th January starting at 4:30pm
