The Queen Charlotte, located in Chickerell, has served as a 48 bed care home for over 20 years. The proposed 14 bed extension will also upgrade the home’s current kitchen and laundry facilities, provide new office and day spaces and restore a magnificent, grade II listed stately lounge. External landscaping will incorporate 23 parking spaces and some beautiful landscaped gardens. The extensive rebuilding of the out building will introduce staff accommodation as well as a new Regional Training Facility. Planning has been submitted.
