Plans have been submitted to create 63 new homes and a 90-bed residential care home on land in Fradley.
If given the go-ahead, the proposals would see the land at Bridge Farm Lane transformed by Accord Housing Association, which bought the land last year.
Access to the new properties would be via Baker Drive and Worthington Road.
A statement from the housing association supporting the planning application said: “The care provision element is a result of the planned closure of three existing care homes with Staffordshire as they are unable to provide the specialist care for dementia residents.
“Two replacement units have been commissioned by the county council which Accord Housing Association will be delivering and managing going forward, the second one being for this site in Fradley.”
The houses on the site will be built by Accord and sold on the open market.
The company added that it would be “seeking to offset the 37% affordable housing provision within the care home element of the scheme, which will be part funded by Homes England and Staffordshire County Council.
“Sixty of the 90 beds will be classed as affordable rent,” the planning statement said.
Full details of the scheme can be seen on Lichfield District Council’s planning website.
