Former Broadstairs care homes to be flattened to make way for flats

How the flats could look Image Hume Planning Consultancy

Proposals to flatten the former Fairfield Manor and Woodlands nursing homes in Broadstairs and build 56 flats have been given the green light.

Fairfield Manor and Woodlands Care Homes were shut down by the Care Quality Commission in 2014.

The site will now be developed with two new buildings with flats being a mix of one, two and three-beds.

The new properties will be in the approximate footprint of the existing care home buildings and a new road will be created from Fairfield Road.

The plans include 78 car parking spaces and 65 cycle spaces. The flint wall at the site boundary and existing trees will be kept.

The plans have been amended to reduce flat numbers from 65.

The residential homes were closed after inspectors identified “serious concerns with the standards of care.” Fifty-nine residents had to be found new homes and 57 staff lost their jobs.

      You are right though
      I have done some background on Hume planning consultancy and it isn’t good news

  1. And how many of the trees that are on the site will be chopped down in the process ?? That site has many mature trees, something of a rarity in concrete Thanet and acts as one of the final refuges for wildlife in Thanet.

  2. why is this council hell bent on using an ex planning officer of thanet council who set up a planning consultancy whilst he was working there? Why is this council allowing an ex planning officer who has inside knowledge of all the green land sites to build houses on our green belt.
    worst though is the fact that hume also is director of 2 companies linked to offshore leaks Barbara Kahan of Finchley road.
    So both TDC and KCC have been receiving money that has been laundered through offshore company formations
