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.
