New care home to be built on site of The Birds pub in Halmer Gate, Spalding
A Spalding landmark pub, which closed in December, will be demolished to make way for a new care home.
South Holland District Council planning officers agreed that a new 61-bed home can be built on the site of The Birds in Halmer Gate, which will free up homes and hospital beds, claimed the applicant, Glenholme Healthcare Group and Life Property Construction.
The developer said the home would help towards an “unmet need” with specialised beds and state-of the-art equipment and help elderly residents who require specialist dementia care.
