Approval lined up for job-creating care home | Midlands Property News

Plans for the construction of a job-creating care home on the site of a public house in Stourbridge has been recommended for approval ahead of a planning committee meeting next week.

Frontier Estates (STO) Ltd is seeking the go-ahead to demolish The Greyhound public house on Norton Road, paving the way for a 52-bed facility.

The application is a resubmission of a previous application for a 55-bed care home, which was refused by the planning authority and was subsequently granted approval by the inspectorate.

The new scheme is forecasted to create about 50 FTE positions once operational.

A statement filed on behalf of the applicant with Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council-whose planning committee meets on 13 July-said: “The proposal comprises a well-designed and high-
quality building, which is entirely appropriate to its context in terms of form and materials. “

A report for the committee added: “The proposed development would be of an appropriate design, scale and appearance that would not have an adverse impact upon the character of the area and would not be detrimental to residential or occupier amenity.”
