Plans from Ladhar Crown Care Developments Limited for a new residential care home in Grantham have been recommended for approval by South Kesteven District Council.

The care home would be built on Harlaxton Road, at the site of the former magistrates court. The vacant court buildings would be demolished to make way for the two-storey scheme.

The development would feature 55 self-contained bedrooms, lounges, dining areas, a cafe and salon. 21 parking spaces would be provided.

A council document reads: “The proposal would provide residential care accommodation to address a local and national need for elderly and disabled housing.

“The design, scale and positioning of the building, along with the removal of the existing building and retention of the existing mature trees on the site would have a positive impact on the character of the area.

“The development would provide a high level of amenity for future occupants and ensure there would be no adverse impact upon the amenity of existing neighbouring properties.”
