He said: “This is a great facility for residents. Having been shown around I can see that every effort has been made to make these homes comfortable whatever someone’s care needs.
“Having sat on the planning committee which granted planning permission to Balmoral Place it is particularly pleasing to see these plans come to fruition.”
Katie Arlow, the service manager for Balmoral Place, said: “Thank you to the Mayor and Councillor Jonathan Nunn for coming along to support us. The tenants had a lovely afternoon I thought it was an extremely rewarding and successful event. They are looking forward to adding lots of pics to the new notice board!”
