COUNCILLOR JOHN DENNIS has confirmed that Care Home facility proposed to be built North of Magdalen Lane has had its planning permission approved.
Councillor Dennis said:
“This application was approved by the main planning committee at their meeting at County Hall yesterday. Personally I believe this to be a good decision for Hedon and its residents, and indeed for those of neighbouring villages too.”
“The severe shortage of dementia care and nursing facilities in the town, results in relatives of dementia sufferers having to travel away from the area just to visit their loved ones.” He continued;“It would have, in my opinion, been a real shame if Hedon had lost this opportunity to bring much needed investment to the area.”

- A 30 bedroom dementia care home with 5 assisted living apartments;
- The construction of a new access road, laying out of gardens and car parking areas and construction of a bowling green and clubhouse.
