New care village approved for Torrington

Plans committee approve application for facility providing round-the-clock residential and dementia care.

PROPOSALS for a new care village in Torrington have been approved by Torridge District Council’s plans committee.

Councillors voted unanimously for 24 apartments, three six-bedroom bungalows and a social centre to be built next to the existing Hatchmoor Home.

Hatchmoor Care Village will provide residential and dementia care and each bungalow would have a full time, live-in carer.

Solomon Singh, manager of Hatchmoor Home, said: “The next step will be to finalise plans and start building next year, hopefully in the spring/summer time.
