The Bessborough Road care home, presently disused, could double in size.
The former Council Care Home, at 79 Bessborough Road, was a 12-bedroom home for adults under the age of 65 with learning difficulties. It closed in 206, as the building no longer meets regulations.
Northwood-based Lion Investments bought the site, and have already had a plan to extend the building refused. Now they have submitted plans to demolish the existing buildings on the site, and replace them with a 30 bedroom home.
