Planning approval for an extension to a care home in Poulton-le-Fylde
The proposal is to improve the facility generally and to increase the available accommodation from 15 bed room to 24 bedrooms.
The proposed extension will also house a new kitchen at the rear of the property easily accessible for deliveries with a better sized laundry and proximate area for bin storage and maintenance equipment. A lift will improve access for less able residents from 23% of the facility to 83%.The existing layout will be reconfigured to incorporate two centrally located lounges and a good sized office space near the existing entrance allowing good surveillance of the access point and adjacent day spaces. The proposed extension will wrap around external garden space forming a secure courtyard garden, which will be ramped allowing access throughout for all. Finally a new fire escape stair will be provided at each end of the building’s internal corridor system.
