A former care home in Weston-super-Mare could be turned into 12 flats for vulnerable adults.

The Fairhome Group is asking for planning permission to convert the former St Anthony’s Court home, in Bristol Road Lower, into flats.

Its tenants with learning difficulties would live independently while receiving help from staff on bills and banking.

The Fairhome Group would work alongside the Brandon Trust and North Somerset Housing Commissioners to run the building.

Its planning application, made to North Somerset Council, says the building would only be changed on the inside.

The Fairhome Group says the site would be virtually car-free, as the tenants would not have their own vehicles.

The site has some parking spaces already, which would be used by staff and visitors.

To view the application, or to make a comment, search for 18/P/2922/FUL on the council’s planning portal.
