Plans to knock down East Sussex house and build 85-bed care home

Plans have been sent in to demolish an East Sussex house and build an 85-bedroom care home.

An application sent to Eastbourne Council hopes to build the 3 1/2 storey home in the town.

The application claims the care home would provide 24-hour personal, nursing and specialist dementia care for the ‘frail and elderly’ public in Eastbourne and the surrounding hours.

The plans also include plans for a cinema, wellness suite, sensory room and winter and summer garden rooms.

Concerns have been raised by nearby residents of the application being an ‘over-development’ of the site.

Mr and Mrs Gibbons wrote in a letter of objection to the plans: “The size and height of the property is overwhelming and would dominate the whole area to its detriment.”

The document was put forward by Hallmark Care Homes and is available on the Eastbourne Borough Council planning website.
