PLANS for an Alabare Christian Care Centre in Longlevens for vulnerable veterans will come before Gloucester City Council’s planning committee tonight.

The centre, in a large detached house in Church Road, would be home to eight ex-servicemen and women with problems such as post traumatic stress disorder, addictions and debt issues and the aim of the project is to get residents into training or work.

The application, which has been recommended for approval, has generated a number of objections and there has been a public meeting to discuss concerns.

Surrounding residents say they are concerned about noise, the potential of inappropriate incidents and parking problems.

    This is something the government has failed to act on and the council needs to make efforts for these people. I don't think local residents need to worry about the centre having any effect on house prices.

    I don't see at all how these ex-servicemen/women would cause a nuisance to anyone. Don't forget they come from a disciplined environment and conduct themselves better than most. If they are suffering from PTS or other ailments, it is because they were fighting for OUR COUNTRY.
