A report has backed plan for new homes and a 90-bed care home on land in Fradley.
Developers have submitted proposals for land at Bridge Farm Lane.
But objections had been raised by Fradley and Streethay Parish Council over concerns about on street parking and issues around improvements to a nearby junction.
Local residents had also raised concern about the continued development of the village which was “changing the character to that of a town”.
However, a report to Lichfield District Council’s planning committee has said the scheme should be given the go-ahead.
“Economically, the proposal will enable development on a sustainably-located greenfield site, which through bringing additional employees and commercial activity as part of the dementia care home into the area will have wider benefits,” the report states.
“Socially, the proposal has been designed and would be operated to ensure no significant impact upon the reasonable amenity of neighbouring residents and established businesses.
“Through providing much-needed dementia care facilities will provide a service necessary for the district.”
Councillors will decide on the proposals at a meeting of Lichfield District Council’s planning committee on 29th October.
