Restaurant could become a care home

Have your say

A RESTAURANT could be turned into a four-bed care home for people with learning disabilities.

Careline Lifestyles wants to convert the ground-floor eaterie, at the old Neville’s Cross Hotel, Durham.

The Gosforth-based company has submitted a planning application to Durham County Council so it can to complete the conversion.

A letter with the application said the home would be registered with the Care Quality Commission andwould have four separate living areas, to provide residents “with their own independent space centred around a core area, in which care staff will be on hand 24 hours a day to organise activities, day care or simply to socialise”.
