Nine two bedroomed apartments are planned to be built on Clifton Drive in Fairhaven, if proposals for the demolition of the now closed Clovelly Rest Home and its associated outbuildings are passed. These plans show that the newly constructed apartments will be three and a half storeys in height, with parking for eighteen cars.
Seven years ago Fylde Council approved plans for the demolition of Clovelly Rest Home. However, this permission from 2014 has lapsed due to no work being done to the site. Therefore, a new submission of proposals from Andrew Franks, based in Macclesfield, has been given to planning officers stating, ‘The proposed apartment block is of the same design as that previously approved, and as such is in keeping with the envisaged design theme, which was previously considered acceptable.’
Fairhaven Ward Councillor, Cheryl Little said, ‘The old care home has been neglected and not looked after for more than ten years now so any sort of investment into it and the area should be welcomed. As long as there is no disruption to neighbouring properties and the designs are in consideration to Fairhaven then I don’t see any problem with the plans.’
