CCG welcomes decision to approve plans for house that will offer people quiet space for recovery

A Norfolk GP has welcomed the approval of plans to convert a detached house in Costessey into short-stay accommodation for people who are experiencing stresses and challenges in their lives.

South Norfolk Council approved plans submitted by Norfolk and Waveney Mind to set up Holly Tree House at its planning committee on June 3, 2020.

Dr Ardyn Ross, NHS Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Clinical Lead for Mental Health, said: “We welcome the decision to approve plans for this important local support service which will provide short-term care and quiet space for people who are experiencing stresses and challenges in their lives.

“Now more than ever it is vital that we support people who might be feeling anxious or uncertain about the future. It’s not just about health professionals – we all have an important role to play in supporting each other, our families, and our communities.

“People who may need to use this space will benefit from a temporary respite in a welcoming and peaceful environment so that they can return to their everyday life. Allowing them for 5 days to focus on their wellbeing, supported by caring professionals to begin the process of recovery.

“We expect the house to be a quiet and relaxing place providing a calm and therapeutic environment to begin that important healing process.”
