Extension for Inverclyde care home?
A two-story extension which would add an extra 14 bedrooms onto the care home has been recommended by planning officials, reports Inverclydenow.
However, twelve objections to the plans have been submitted.
According to the newspaper, Stuart Jamieson, head of regeneration and planning, promoted the changes in a report to the Inverclyde Planning Board.
"I am satisfied that the siting, massing and orientation of the proposed extension will not lead to an unacceptable loss of daylight to either neighbouring gardens or the windows of neighbouring residential properties," he said.
Meanwhile, people choosing a care home in Tyneside have had their options expanded, with the opening of two new care homes, the Journal reports.
A care home in Brunswick Village and another in Wallsend have been opened by DAV Developments, with the organisation planning on expanding its portfolio of facilities in the area later this year.
