Suffolk nursing home to close

Posted on October 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

A Suffolk nursing home is to be converted back into a luxury mansion despite opposition from residents and staff. Bacton Grange near Stowmarket, an extensive Victorian country house, will close after 30 years and 14 staff will lose their jobs. Mid-Suffolk District Council gave permission for the change of use after hearing that the home, which has 11 residents, had not been viable for the last two years. Residents were given 28 days to leave. Local planning officer Gary Pullan said the local community was worried about the loss of employment.
