Planning approval for an extension to a care home in Poulton-le-Fylde

June 14, 2016

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.
