Housing and a care home are being planned for the site of a hotel on the edge of Enfield’s green belt.

A consultation has been launched on proposals by Signature Senior Lifestyle and Bellway Homes to redevelop the Royal Chace Hotel in The Ridgeway.

The plans would see the 92-bedroom hotel, built in 1970, replaced by a 102-bedroom care home located closer to the road. This would free up space to the south of the site to allow 60 homes to be built.

The Royal Chace is just outside the green belt, which lies to the north and west of the site.

According to the developers, there would be 50 car spaces and two minibus spaces, which “will avoid overspill parking occurring onto local roads”.

Signature says it provides “flexible personalised care that can adapt to the changing needs and circumstances of each resident”.

Options include day care, respite care and longer-term care support for people with conditions such as Alzheimer’s and age-related dementia.

The current designs for the Royal Chace site show a care home ranging over three floors, with a café, restaurant, lounge, salon, cinema and other facilities.

Apartments up to four storeys high would provide 32 homes, with the remaining residential development consisting of two-storey houses with rooms in the roof space.

Private gardens would be provided to the rear of the houses, with communal landscaped gardens close to the apartments.

Members of the public have been invited to have their say on the plans before they are submitted to Enfield Council.
