Worker accommodation planned for Cullen care home
The former Lythe Care Home in Cullen could be converted into service accommodation for wind farm workers under new plans.
In May 2021, the care home was closed down following a poor inspection report.
Now Grant and Geoghegan Limited has submitted a planning application on behalf of Iain Currie to Aberdeenshire Council for the transformation.
The partial change of use is proposed to provide mainly worker accommodation for the numerous wind farm and SSE cable line projects that are taking place in the area, The Press and Journal reports.
In a planning statement, Mr Currie said: “Workers will travel by car and minibus to and from their worksite to the accommodation.
“New residents will enter the building in groups, with access keypad at the main door, with additional keypad access into the individual rooms, access codes will be emailed to the customers prior to arrival.
“Accommodation will be room only and cleaning of rooms will be carried out daily.
“Upon departure, the room codes will be changed for the next occupant and building management will be carried out by the applicant, who resides next door.”
