Dementia Unit Planning Application

A planning application was submitted in 2022 for the extension of this Derbyshire care home facility to create a much needed dedicated dementia unit. Projections for 2017 to 2040 suggest a 74% rise in those with dementia. We need to plan for more support, both at home, but also in dedicated units for those with Dementia and/or Alzheimer’s disease.
The proposals went through a thorough planning review and were recommended for approval by the Local Planning Authority. Unfortunately, the application was subsequently turned down by the planning committee in late 2022.
Since then we have been working with the client, and through a new pre-application with the Local Planning Authority, to review the concerns of the planning committee. Feedback from the LPA has been very positive and we’re now in a position to make a resubmission.
