Purpose Lancashire County Council is consulting on a proposal to replace Bowgreave Rise residential care home with extra care housing. Full details about extra care housing can be found at the link provided above.

Bowgreave Rise in Garstang is an older people's residential care home owned and managed by Lancashire County Council which was built in 1970 and its layout makes it difficult to meet modern quality standards and current expectations. For example, there are shared toilets and bathrooms. However the care offered is still of a good standard.

Extra care housing is designed to be an alternative to residential care and enables people to remain independent as long as possible. .

We are would appreciate your feedback on our proposals to:
- work closely with stakeholders and partners to develop an extra care scheme in the grounds of Bowgreave Rise, subject to planning permission, which once completed would replace the existing residential care home.
- support the current residents of Bowgreave Rise to continue to live within the residential care home whilst the extra care scheme is built, or seek alternative accommodation. We would work with the developer in order to minimise disruption.
- demolish the care home once all residents have moved into either the extra care scheme or another appropriate setting, as determined by their needs and wishes
- build supported housing for people with social care needs, subject to planning permission, on the cleared site.
