A NEW CARE HOME has been proposed to be built on land to the North Of Magdalen Lane, Hedon.
The planning application is for the construction of two buildings for use as:
- A 54 bedroom care home with 5 assisted living apartments, and;
- A 30 bedroom dementia care home with 5 assisted living apartments;
- The construction of a new access road, laying out of gardens and car parking areas and construction of a bowling green and clubhouse.
It is understood that the facilities being proposed also include a cinema and a gym.
As people get older – and with a population that is living longer than ever before – then many will face having to make choices about their homes and living arrangements; and perhaps make choices for other family members that begin to experience ill-health and need additional help.
One of the choices available will be Care Homes that can offer independent and assisted living options such as this proposal by Brantingham-based Yorkare Homes Ltd.
In 2009 a similar proposal for a Care Home on the east side of Preston Road, Hedon was refused on the grounds of adverse impact on the open gap between Hedon and Preston.
