St Margaret's may become nursing home

Four Seasons Health Care are submitting a planning application for the main campus at the East Sufflok Road site.  They intend to create a nursing home.  More details here.

The proposals for a Muslim community centre are likely to be superseded if this planning application is successful.

Update 2300hrs:  It is suggested in the comments below that the Iqra proposals and the Four Seasons proposals relate to differing buildings.  I haven't had a chance to speak to the Iqra people in the past few weeks and I' m not sure when they last updated their website but
  • a quick comparison between the Iqra website and the Four Seasons planning application (11/01375/FUL) does suggest the same buildings.
  • Last I heard the Iqra plans were dependant on raising the necessary purchase price.  It is not clear if they have reached that yet.
In short, more clarification needed.

are the nursing home and community centre plans not for different buildings at the former St Margaret's? That was the point made in one of the comments to the EEN story
