Wheatlands Care Home in Bonnybridge could soon have an extra 22 bedrooms, if planning permission is granted.

Owner Balhousie Care Group has applied for planning permission for a large extension, which would include the extra bedrooms plus two residents’ lounges and will also feature a new outdoor space.

The home currently has capacity for 59 residents.

A spokesperson for the home said: “The decision to add more bedrooms to the home follows high public demand and a long waiting list.

“Balhousie Wheatlands holds the Care Inspectorate’s top ratings, Grade 6, for its excellent services and leadership.”
