Plans to expand community care home in North Walsham

Proposals have been put forward for two new flats to be built at a community care home in north Norfolk.

The proposal is to build two more small bungalows, which would be three-bed self-contained flats, in the grounds of Worstead Lodge in Cromer Road, North Walsham, to provide support and accommodation for up to six more individuals.

A planning application, which has been submitted to North Norfolk District Council and is currently under consultation, states: 'There is a growing demand from local people with learning disabilities and their parents for high quality accommodation and the appropriate levels of care and support that we believe we are able to provide.

'We currently employ 15 local care staff. The new build will mean an increase in the number of care staff we employ with a subsequent increase in revenue to the local community as well as the legacy of much needed locally based social care provision.'

The new units will be sited within an existing grassed area, and will be in keeping with the original Worstead Lodge brick structure.
