Care home plans given green light

PLANS to build a care home near the Rosebird Centre in Stratford have been given the green light despite objections.

Applicants Caring Homes Group will build a residential home off the Shipston Road with 75 ensuite bedrooms for elderly people who have specific nursing needs or are living with dementia.

The plans also include six bedrooms for staff, a cinema, library, therapy room, cafe and terrace areas.

Caring Homes outlined in its proposal a shortfall of some 190 beds for elderly residents in the district, with Stratford’s older population being higher than the national average.

But the plans had been met with objections concerning the lack of parking and the visual impact the building would have on neighbouring homes.

Stratford District Council’s planning committee had recommended the plans for approval subject to the developers also providing £100,000 to improve facilities for pedestrian and cyclists crossing the Shipston Road, £30,500 to improve the Bridge House Medical Centre on Scholars Lane, and £32,300 to provide additional facilities to meet patient demand at nearby hospitals.
