Sheltered housing complex approved in Bourne

AN EXTENSION to a sheltered housing complex has been approved.

South Kesteven District Council gave itself planning permission to build a two-storey extension to block 1 to 22 of the Meadow Close complex in Bourne and turn six existing bedsits into four self-contained apartments.

The council will also install washing facilities in each apartment to remove the need for communal bathrooms.
