Opportunity to comment on plans for carehome on The Linkway

New plans have been submitted to Brighton and Hove City Council for a three storey care home at Grove Park on The Linkway. The site owner, Hazeldene Project Management, wants to build a three-storey care home with 88 bedrooms at Grove Park, the former William Moon Lodge site.

The company already has two existing planning permissions for a two-storey care home on the site. One set of approved plans includes 100 bedrooms while the other has 75 bedrooms. The site has remained empty for ten years after the former care home, William Moon Lodge, was demolished.

In the latest application the ground floor would be below street level while the building would have a smaller footprint than the previous plans. The new plans are for a building  more central to the site.  Each floor in the planned home would house people with different needs.

The application is also intended to deal with neighbours’ concerns about parking raised after previous plans were submitted. It would provide  39 parking spaces compared to 18 in previous applications.

You can view the application – no BH2018/02051 here  and submit comments – deadline for comments Monday 13th August
