Visiting the Sally Army
This afternoon I visited the Mildred Duff Eventide home in North Walsham to be briefed on their plans for a new building. The home is run by the Salvation Army. Unfortunately North Norfolk District Council turned down their planning application for a new home on the existing site this week. Councillors described the design of the new building as 'alien to North Norfolk'. Having seen the plans I can't understand it and am going to take it up with them. We can't afford to lose this facility. They have 22 residents and have plans to take 40, including a special unit for 10 dementia sufferers. With Rebecca House closing it is vital the planners find a way through the present situation.
