Downend is a prosperous suburb of north east Bristol and the site itself occupies an extremely prominent position in the centre of town.
Earlplace have just secured a hard fought planning consent that provides for the demolition of all existing buildings on site and construction of a state of the art care home providing 49 bedrooms. All rooms are far larger than the CQC requires and each has an ensuite shower and toilet. In addition, there are lounges and communal areas. The scheme was supported by the planning and conservation officers and as it occupies such a prominent town centre site, will contribute much to the architecture of the area.
The site was sold November 2011.
