Application to Build 65-bed Care Home & Brain Injury Unit in St Mary’s Lane

Former Ruskins site, St Mary’s Lane

A Planning Application to build a 65-bed Residential Care Home, along with a Brain Injury Unit, on the former Ruskins site in St Mary’s Lane (land between Coopers School and The Chase) has been received by the Council.

The site, which is designated Green Belt Land, occupies an area of two hectares. The applicants state that the Care Home will employ an overall roll of 60 staff with a further 35 in the Brain Injury Unit. The applicant also proposes to provide 31 car parking spaces, including two disabled bays.

Details of the Application (P0125.17), Plans, Travel Plans and an opportunity to lodge an official comment/representation on the proposal can be found HERE

  1. Surely that’s not even nearly enough car parking spaces! It won’t accommodate the staff let alone the visitors.

  2. i agree that there wont be enough parking. but its green belt land anyway so should not be considered at all.

    there is or was a stipulation in the people who live in bungalows opposite this field that they should have a view of All Saints church from their property , its a condition in their lease/agreement etc that they should enjoy an uninterrupted view of the Church.

    its nice to see a bit of green belt and if you remember the so called plan to build a nursing home on the farm units up The Chase never happened. What happened was the developers got planning permission for an old peoples home up the Chase, and then the site was developed into homes mostly for families, there is not a retirement home up the Chase. I wonder how the developers got away with that.

    So please not only do we not want a nursing home on Ruskins site, but the traffic flow will seriously cause problems on St Marys Lane which gets congested frequently anyway. Where will visitors park and where will staff park i wonder.

  3. I agree with the 2 comments, we dont need a carehome in St. Mary’s lane, we have more than enough in Upminster, keep the green belt land. St. Mary’s lane & surrounding roads are congested enough already.
