Inspector recommends approval of DHSC plans

Plans to build a 60-bed care home and daycare centre at the Glenside site in Douglas have been tweaked and re-submitted by the Manx government.

At its meeting on Monday (2 July) the Planning Committee will discuss the proposed development, which the planning inspector has recommended be approved.

An application made by the Department of Health and Social Care earlier this year was refused on highways grounds, after concerns  about vehicular access to the site via Victoria Road.

The issue of road safety at the site was also raised by Douglas Borough Council.

This amended application, put forward by the DHSC in April, is very similar to the previous one, but looks to address those concerns.It includes the creation of a 36-space car park, two minibus spaces, an off lay-by, and an ambulance space.

The complex itself  includes 60 en-suite bedrooms, divided into four ‘communities’, each with lounge, dining room and other facilities.

One of these areas will be specifically for residents with dementia.
