New nursing home given the go ahead in Blackrock
A new nursing home has been given the go ahead for the Old Golf Links Road in Blackrock.
Arbortree Investments Limited have been granted conditional planning permission by Louth County Council for the elderly care centre at the Knockshee development, opposite Felda.
They are proposing to construct a two storey 106 bed nursing home, as well as a two storey apartment structure containing 12 two bed assisted living units.
There are also plans for a single storey laundry/utility structure centralising storage and services regarding the other two structures.
Plans for the nursing home were first submitted last September but plans have only been approved this week. On top of the nursing home, 50 new homes are also planned for the 14 acre site which is not included as part of this application. Those plans were also put forward last September but were later withdrawn.
It is hoped the development can be completed by the end of next year.
