A three-storey care home will make use of the space, with designs in line with Doncaster Council’s Local Plan.
A former pub is set to become an elderly care home after plans were approved by Doncaster Council.
The site of former pub The Benbow off Armthorpe Road in Intake has gained approval to become a 64-bed care home. It marks the end of a lengthy process to find a suitable use for the site.
An applicant first gained permission to build an Indian restaurant on the site on three different ocassions in 2010, 2014 and 2016 however building work failed to begin each time.
In 2019, an application was denied to turn the site into a complex of a petrol station, shops and takeaways.
The derelict area has since become a flytipping hotspot.
Now a three-storey care home will make use of the space, with designs in line with Doncaster Council’s Local Plan.
The application received three public comments, one in support, one neutral and one against without any reasons listed.
For this reason the proposal did not go to a planning meeting.
