unveiled to convert seafront nursing home into guesthouse

soon be turned into a new guesthouse under plans submitted this
Cottage residential care home, situated on the North Esplanade,
has been vacant since owners Brunelcare close down the facilities
in 2009 due to financial pressures.
A couple from Oxfordshire, who soon hope to purchase the property,
have submitted a 'change of use' application to convert it from
a care home into a guest house incorporating owner's accommodation.
The plans were received by Sedgemoor District Council on Tuesday
(March 29th) and will be considered by its planning department
and town councillors during coming weeks.
