Former council leader launches Littleport care home bid
A FORMER district council leader is hoping to redevelop two properties in Littleport into a new care home, but his plans have already been met with opposition.
Cllr Fred Brown has applied to East Cambridgeshire District Council to redevelop Granary Lodge, in Granary Lane, into a residential care home spread across two buildings, linked by a corridor.
The home will feature large gardens, parking spaces and will provide jobs for a warden and care staff but have already attracted objections from neighbours, who say the extra traffic will make access to their homes even more difficult.
In consultation with the council, Bryan Hughes said: “There just is not enough room for more development in this area. It is a dead end lane with no room to turn around. Vehicles have to reverse out onto the main road, it is an accident waiting to happen.”
Nigel Reynolds added: “This area already has access problems and parking problems, although it seems parking has been provided the concern is that it will not be enough and add to the already problematic parking issues in the area.”
