Type II is defined as a “residential care home in which the number of residents, excluding staff, is more than five and not more than 15”.
Subject to Discretionary Use approval, 160 Stromberg Crescent will be developed to accommodate a Residential Care Home - Type II with capacity for a maximum of fifteen (15) residents and four (4) staff members at any given time.
