A care home on the outskirts of Ipswich has been granted permission to build an extension of five extra bedrooms.
Bucklesham Grange Care Home, in Purdis Farm, applied to East Suffolk Council seeking permission to construct a single-storey extension to the east of its site in Bucklesham Road.
As well as the extension, the scheme would create an additional eight car parking spaces at the care home.
Bucklesham Grange, which is managed by Hallmark Care Homes, can currently provide care for up to 57 residents.
Planning documents submitted with the proposals said the scheme would provide "improved facilities for all residents and visiting families" and allow the home to "expand their existing first-class activities and care programme and provide alternative dayspace destinations for residents".

East Suffolk planners gave the scheme the go-ahead this week.
