Hucknall: Plans for new care home on a housing estate rejected

Plans for a care home on a Hucknall housing estate have been refused permission after more than 100 people objected.

The four-bed property on Lovesey Avenue would have been used as a home for adults with learning disabilities.

However, it attracted more than 130 formal planning objections from residents and nearly 200 signatures on a petition, saying it was unsuitable for the quiet neighbourhood.

Ashfield District Council’s planning committee rejected the application on Wednesday (January 24), citing the impact that additional vehicles would have on a street where parking is already at a premium.

The committee concluded the development “fails to provide safe and suitable access for all users” and would have an “unacceptable impact upon the safety and capacity of the local highway network” due to parking problems.

The application had been submitted by Mr Tajinder Ubhi of the Nottingham-based 9 Property Group.
