Keller House Residential Care Home, in Carew Road, has had plans submitted to Eastbourne Borough Council to convert it into a house with four or more bedrooms.

The building is currently vacant and was last used as a care home in November 2016, plans say.

According to NHS England, the site provided accommodation and personal care for up to 15 people with dementia-type illnesses.

There are already four car spaces which would remain, according to the plans.

Members of the public can comment on the plans until February 3 (planning application number: 211068).
