Extension planned for Exmouth care home
PUBLISHED: 07:02 23 September 2017
Plans have been put forward for a major extension of an Exmouth care home.
The planning application for Amberwood Nursing Home in Exeter Road is for 15 new bedrooms, taking the total number at the home from 19 to 34.
The application states that currently, applications for places at the home often outstrip supply, and that the plan would also allow an upgrade of the home’s day space and communal areas, and also improved access to the garden.
The application states: “The proposals are essential to the future of this highly regarded and reputable care facility.
“The proposals will deliver, via investment, a substantially improved care environment.”
Permission to extend the care home was previously granted in 2007, but this has now lapsed.
East Devon District Council will decide on planning permission for the new application.
