Children’s home given green light
PLANNING permission to convert a Lochyside guest house into a children's residential home has been accepted.
Lochan cottage, a seven-bedroomed guest house, is to be converted into a residential home for up to five children who would live at the property with two staff at the house 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Children will stay for between several weeks up to a number of years. It is believed the residential home will be set up by Scottish children's charity Aberlour Trust, which helps children and families with issues such as living with a disability, growing up in and leaving care and the impact of drugs and alcohol on families.
