PLANNERS have approved proposals for a care and supported living development in north east Glasgow.
Voyage Care applied to build the facility at Findochty Street, opposite Findochty Place in Garthamlock.
There will be three buildings:
— A 16-bed brain injury rehabilitation care home
— A block with 12 brain injury rehabilitation supported-living apartments
— A block with 12 supported-living apartments for people with learning disability.
A design document submitted with the application stated: “The aspiration of this project is to provide much-needed high quality care and supported living apartments that specifically provide for people with learning disabilities, and to provide care and support for people with a brain injury.
“The site is currently vacant and has become vegetated with scrub and self seeded trees. Our clients, Voyage Care wish to transform this site and provide a positive addition to the neighbourhood.”
“Voyage Care prefer to offer care or residential support at a small scale; their facilities are similar in scale to small apartment buildings rather than some care homes which are institutional in scale.”
