Ho­tel could be for sup­ported liv­ing

Accrington Observer - - YOUR PICTURES -

A FOUR-STAR ho­tel could be turned into res­i­den­tial sup­ported liv­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion.

Na­tional Care Group Ltd has ap­plied for plan­ning per­mis­sion to change the use of The Maple Lodge at 70 Black­burn Road in Clay­ton-le-Moors.

The cur­rent ho­tel pro­vides eight en-suite guest rooms with liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas over three floors.

Un­der the new scheme six en-suite bed­rooms would be cre­ated on the ground and first floor with two self-con­tained units at the lower ground floor.

The ac­com­mo­da­tion will be used for ‘peo­ple of vary­ing ages who re­quire sup­ported liv­ing fa­cil­i­ties’.

Plan­ning doc­u­ments said the build­ing’s ex­ter­nal ap­pear­ance will not be al­tered. The fa­cil­ity will have one mem­ber of staff per­ma­nently on site and ‘po­ten­tially two part-time staff on site through­out the day and evenings’.

The ap­pli­ca­tion said: “The ex­ist­ing ho­tel car park has suf­fi­cient park­ing to ac­com­mo­date its guests and cur­rent ho­tel man­age­ment who live on site.

“This change of use will sig­nif­i­cantly re­duce the num­ber of ve­hi­cles ac­cess­ing the site.”

A de­ci­sion will be made later this year.
