Authentic Kare, a domiciliary support group, who specialise in live-in care, has applied to convert a Milton Keynes home.

The house in question is on Gladstone Close, in Newport Pagnell. The care agency wants to use the three-bedroom home, to house two homeless children.

In the design and access statement submitted to Milton Keynes Council, it was stated that the purpose of the plan would be to "create safe and family environment to homeless children."

The plan would leave the design of the building untouched, but a car park would be constructed to accommodate three cars. New parking spaces would be needed for carers required to work shifts to ensure the children were supervised.

The plan also requests the building of an outdoor drinks counter of 'modest scale'. The application was validated on Monday April 12, the determination date on the plans is June 7.

Members of the public can comment on the plans until the consultation period closes on May 12.
