PLANS to convert a Wilthorpe bungalow and turn it into a children’s home have been approved.

An application was originally submitted in April for the work to take place on Melvinia Crescent.

The home will be used for two children after plans were officially given the green light earlier this week.

A report said: “The applicant’s statement indicates that the proposed use is for the accommodation of up to two children and one care staff, with an additional manager visiting the site between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.

“The members of care staff would work on a 36-hour shift pattern, with a team of four staff in the rotation.

“Shift changes would take place at either 8am or 8pm, with the exception of changeover times, and there will no more than two members of staff on the premises at any one time.”
