Up to 35 new jobs could be created if plans to build a dementia home in Heacham are given the go-ahead.

Armscare wants to construct a dementia home on land adjacent to its Summerville House, in Fenway.

The existing home is registered for 26 residents and the company says there is a great need for this kind of service.

In the statement with the planning application, the company says: “This new home would be sited on an existing site, adjacent to an existing home which could have very little alternative use and no detrimental impact on the local environment, other than to provide the locality with a much needed state of the art mental health facility in the North West Norfolk region.

“The existing home provides two en suite bedrooms and 18 bedrooms that are served by assisted bathrooms.

“The new home would bring not only present day standards as required in all new homes but also provides residents with the full comfort expected at such an important time in life. All bedrooms will have en suite facilities.”

The home will be designed to match an existing barn conversion.
