Restful Homes’ Avon Court care home in Stratford-upon-Avon can now truly relax thanks to David Tucker Associates.
The care home had come under scrutiny by Stratford District Council for installing metal security gates at their entrance from Scholars Lane. The council raised concerns that the gates could cause a highway’s safety problem by slowing down vehicles turning into the home.
DTA was appointed by Restful Homes to produce a statement after the objection had reached appeal status. Claims that there had also been property damage as a result of the gates’ installation were found to be unsubstantiated, with the Inspector finding in DTA’s and Restful Homes’ favour. As part of the negotiation DTA agreed to design some additional minor signage at the property entrance, allowing the security gates to be retained.
