Green light to home plan

A BUILDING used as a residential care home for adults with learning difficulties will become a private house after council chiefs gave the proposals a green light.

Diane Jeromson, of Bonnyrigg, submitted a planning application to return the three-storey care home at Rowanbank in Powderhill Brae, Gorebridge, to its previous use as a house.

A planning report to Midlothian Council found: "The majority of other properties on the street are in residential use. There will be no significant impact on the amenity of the neighbouring residential properties."
