Care home extension plans set for approval

Plans to extend a care home in Ruabon could be given the green light next week.

Members of Wrexham Council’s planning committee have been asked to approve an application to build an additional seven en-suite bedrooms at The Conifers care home in the village.

The plans are the second of their kind to have been submitted to the council, with initial proposals seeking permission proposing to build a single extension to accommodate six extra bedrooms.

However a revised application due before councillors next week address concerns about the impact the development would have on tree coverage, with amendments made to the plans.

The new application would also see the number of bedrooms on the site increase from 26 to 35.

Two objections to the proposed development were submitted, with concerns about the loss of outdoor space for residents, impact on the existing view, loss of privacy and noise from staff and visitors using the car park.

But the plans have been recommended for approval by the council’s head of environment and planning, who says that the extensions will be in keeping with the existing building.

He adds: “I am satisfied that the layout and appearance of the development is acceptable and that it can take place without harm to residential amenity, highway safety, the character of the area or to statutory protected sites and species.”

The application will be considered for approval by planning committee members on Monday October 1st at 4pm.
