PLANS have been approved to expand a care home to provide three new apartments at Belton for people with learning disabilities and create six jobs.

Great Yarmouth Borough Council's development control committee granted planning permission for the development, which will provide extra self-contained accommodation for people with autism and disabilities at Decoy Farm.

The existing care unit is big enough for five residents, but developer Kingsley Care Homes wanted to expand to meet demand.

In April, the firm's managing director, Daya Thayan, said the apartments were designed to enable adults aged between 18 and 65 to live independently. A support worker would be on hand round the clock.

Mr Thayan added: “It is about community inclusion and giving them a chance to learn new skills.”
