The site is currently open and borders the Billericay Lawn Tennis Club to the south and across the street to the east and west.
The planning statement, written on behalf of the applicant and submitted as part of the planning applications, states: “Retirement home, sheltered accommodation, is a proven option for older people who want to move into accommodation that has the ability to provide comfort, safety and security to manage independently to a greater extent.
“It enables older people to live in the community and outside of institutions while they are calm and given the care and support they need.

“The retirement housing developments proposed here are designed for the more independent elderly person who is developing one and two bedroom apartments around a central core of community facilities.
“The communal facilities include the residents’ lounge, the guest suite and garbage room, the mobility scooter shop and the property manager’s office.
“All apartments have level access and careline facilities, while all floors are accessible by elevator.”
The suggested additional care apartments are intended for people who need more support.
The planning statement added, “People who buy a nursing home will believe that as their weakness and dependency grow, they will find themselves in the right environment.
“You and your families also have the peace of mind that changing personal care needs can be easily arranged with an on-site staff team.”
