THE PROPOSAL to build a new Care Home facility on Magdalen Lane has caused much controversy and debate. The proposal on the Planning Application states:
Erection of two buildings for use as 1) A 54 bedroom care home with 5 assisted living apartments and 2) A 30 bedroom dementia care home with 5 assisted living apartments together with construction of a new access road, laying out of gardens and car parking areas and construction of a bowling green and clubhouse | Land North Of 79 Magdalen Lane Hedon East Riding Of Yorkshire.
The Planning Application for the facility was discussed by a special Hedon Town Council Planning Committee meeting last week, at which the council resolved:
Hedon Town Council welcomes development of care facilities in the Hedon area, however, we have concerns regarding possible flooding and transport issues that may be created by this development. With this in mind, Hedon Town Council does not support this application and asks that if the officer is mindful of approval that the application be referred to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council Planning Committee for consideration.
It was further RESOLVED that Hedon Town Council expresses concern with regard to the time limit imposed for consultation and the fact that an application of such size, scale and impact has been submitted for consultation during recess period.
Note: The above statement is the recorded decision from the Special Hedon Town Council Planning Committee meeting on 16th August 2012 and submitted to the East Riding Council as its consultee response.
- The need for specialist care facilities in Hedon, rather than having to go out of town
- The possible beneficial impacts on jobs and the economy
- The possible negative impacts of flooding (inadequate drainage system) and increase in traffic.
