A care home in Spalding is to have 13 new bedrooms and communal areas.

Plans for the extension to The Bungalow in Park Road have been given the thumbs-up after a previous application for 19 bedrooms was lost at appeal.

In January, Coun Christine Lawton applauded the decision that stopped elderly residents living in “attic rooms.”

She said in a report to South Holland District Council planners that the single-storey plan was an improvement. However, she feared there could still be a case of overdevelopment.

Spalding and District Civic Society was disappointed there was no green amenity space, but this was “not something to be discussed”.
