The Old Parsonage, Otterbourne
We are delighted to announce that a scheme for 16 No. 2-bed close care apartments at the grade II listed Old Parsonage in Otterbourne was granted planning and listed building consent at this month’s planning committee meeting.
The scheme was designed by Radley House Partnership for The Brendoncare Foundation, the Winchester based charity that owns and runs the current facility. Following re-location of the former care home to a new facility at Otterbourne Hill last August, Brendoncare can now increase its care offering for the local community.
The plans allow for the removal of the harmful 1980’s care wing so that the listed building can be returned to the standalone building it once was. 12 new close care apartments with communal facilities will be built in the care wings place, which are arranged around a prominent central axis and joined by an open balcony link. A further 4 apartments will be located in the listed building, which will undergo sympathetic repair and refurbishment.
