Care home plan for dementia patients set to win approval
10:14am Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
AN application to build a care home for elderly people with dementia is set to win planning approval next week.
Developer MedicX and operator Barchester Healthcare applied to build a 60-room home at Longview, a former children’s mental health unit in Turner Road.
The 1.5 acre site was emptied by the North Essex mental health partnership last year.
Colchester Council’s planning committee has been recommended by officers to approve the bid at a meeting next Thursday.
