Offaly nursing home planning major increase in capacity

Esker Ri Nursing Home near Clara

An Offaly nursing home is planning to add 18 new bedrooms to the existing premises.

Esker Ri Nursing Home near Clara has lodged a detailed planning application with Offaly County Council.

The plans include changing the use of existing attic space to accommodate 10 residents' bedrooms. There are also plans for a two storey extension comprising kitchen storage at ground floor level and residents accommodation comprising new 2.5 bedrooms at first floor level. The plans also envision converting existing first floor staff accommodation into 5.5 new bedrooms for residents.

A decision is due on the application in mid November.
