PLANNING heads are considering proposals to build a 75-bed care home in a Hampshire town.
NL Care & Palace Capital (Signal) Ltd has applied for permission to transform a large rectangular site in Wallington Hill, Fareham, replacing two office buildings.
It says the proposed development will provide retirees with specialist care in a “modern and vibrant” environment.
Facilities will include a cafe and hair salon, as well as lounges, dining rooms and quiet bedrooms. All residents will benefit from common facilities and landscaped areas as well as access to private garden areas.
The application says the home will provide a much-needed care facility for people with nursing and dementia needs.
He adds: “The existing site is currently occupied by two buildings. Admiral House, which appears to have been built in the late 1920s, is a building of limited heritage value and of little architectural interest. The other building is Nicholson Gate, a 20th century office building.
“The site is entirely within the Fareham High Street Conservation Area but contains no heritage assets, designated or otherwise.”
A public notice outlining the scheme has been issued by Fareham Borough Council, who will decide on the application.
