A semi-detached home in Hellesdon could be used to provide supported living accommodation for up to five people.

Michael Lamai is seeking change of use permission from Broadland District Council for the property at 149 Woodland Road.

A planning statement attached to the application states a similar scheme for the house had previously been refused.

Parker Planning Services, on behalf of the applicant, said the home would support nearby hospitals, but stressed it was not a “care home”.

“It would be a place where people will be getting used to normal life again living within a community,” the application said.

It added occupants can live at the home for “as long as they want” but there was an expectation they would be there for around a year.

To view the plans, search 20180224 on Broadland District Council’s planning website.
