We have had some recent successes at Ethical Partnership, which we are excited to share. We have received the confirmation of planning permission for a residential development in Whitley Bay, and also lodged an application for the refurbishment, extension and addition of a new block to a care home.
Morris Grange Care Home
The proposal was submitted to Richmondshire District Council on behalf of our client GH Group (UK) for a the proposed partial demolition, extension and refurbishment of existing Care Home. This will form a 50 Bed Care Home, erection of a 3 storey Close Care apartment building with associated access and car parking. The proposals include a single storey wing to the eastern boundary of the site – which includes a basement area built into the natural slope of the site – and a flat roofed single storey area to the front of the building accommodating a kitchen and ancillary plant areas.
Once cleared these areas will allow for the erection of a new building accommodating 23 close care apartments. This will offer residents over the age of 55 predominantly single bed apartments with communal facilities and care packages associated with the on-site care home and a new kitchen and laundry facility in a central location. This will help to ensure a fantastic quality of life for residents.
Also, new extensions will be built on two of the south-facing garden elevations to accommodate additional bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities. A new entrance area will be formed at the original heart of the care home which will give level ground floor access to the central administration facility. In turn, the 3 new care units will accommodate 20 Nursing, 20 Nursing Dementia & 10 Challenging Behaviour beds, giving a total of 50 residents the care needed to ensure a fantastic quality of life.
South Parade, Whitley Bay
Planning permission has been granted for a change of use of the building to provide 8 residential units from a public house by North Tyneside Council for Blockdale Limited in February 2020. Ethical Partnership handled the planning application and ultimately secured planning permission. The proposal will add significant value in terms of improving the current street scene within this area of Whitley Bay, which is currently undergoing a significant change in character. The proposal would also offer much needed housing, particularly in town centre locations.
