A care home in Maidenhead found to be breaching its planning consent by housing non-elderly residents has been given time to submit proposals to change its conditions.
The Royal Borough is considering taking enforcement action againt Apple Hill, in Henley Road, after it obtained information showing 15 of its residents were under the age of 65 despite only having planning permission allowing it to house elderly patients.
But a spokesman for the Royal Borough said the council is holding fire on legal action as a proposed application to change the restrictions on the home, owned by Henley Healthcare Limited, is expected imminently.
