A £7 million state-of-the-art residential home could soon be given the green light for Llanfairfechan.
By Mari Jones
Conwy County Council's cabinet has given the go-ahead for the latest phase of the review of residential homes. The authority has been looking at ways to modernise and improve services for the elderly in the county.
The formal consultation on the closure and remodelling of Plas y Llan residential home, to form part of the new extra care housing scheme for Llanfairfechan, is underway.
At present, Plas y Llan provides residential care for the elderly and has 40 rooms over three floors. The building is dated and if the proposal gets the go-ahead residents will still get 24-hour care but will also have the use of an individual flat rather than a single bedroom, as is available in a residential home at the moment.
The scheme involves the adjoining Argoed block of flats, which is currently vacant.
Brett Sadler, extra care housing manager at Conwy, said: "The accommodation will be designed in a way that ensures all tenants' safety and security "The finished apartments will be rented or purchased outright, ensuring the tenants remain in control and as independent as possible.
"Every resident will have a front door and some flats will have two bedrooms so relatives will be able to stay. The flats will also be available for married couples. "I've been to similar residential homes in South Wales and they work very well, the residents seem to be very happy. It is an exciting project for Llanfairfechan. The Welsh Assembly would give a £5 million grant toward the scheme and North Wales Housing Association would also give £2 million."
If the proposal gets the go-ahead, building work will start next April and the newly developed home should be open by 2010.
