‘Eyesore’: Anger over ‘disgusting’ fly-tipping at former care home site in Gedling

The former care home is now attracting fly tipping


A former nursing home in Gedling has been a source of annoyance for residents of Stoke Lane since it’s closure following a damning report in 2020 by the Care Quality Commission.

The site is attracting fly tipping with old carpets and food waste being dumped at the premises. The waste can visibly be seen blowing around the premises and also the local area.

A local resident who contacted Gedling Eye about the issues said ‘the site is an eyesore and only today I have had to clear up takeaway boxes and food containers that have blown into my garden … it was disgusting’

Following the closure of the nursing home local residents, received letters advising them that the property was to be turned into ‘supported accommodation’.

Gedling Eye reported in 2021 on a meeting that angry residents and councillors held a meeting in reaction to the letter that was sent out to the local community by a homeless charity claiming that the care home in Gedling would soon be converted to provide ‘supported accommodation’.

The letter was sent by All Saints Homeless Shelter charity to residents on Stoke Lane informing them they would be taking over the management of the former Stoke House care home.

In recent times there have been reports of alleged squatting and a number of break-ins where copper pipes have been stolen, leaks have occurred and vandalism including paint being thrown around.

The owner subsequently secured the site and security has been put in place.

  1. So much for ” Magpie Security ” which is supposed to be protecting the building. Fence has been broken and repaired numerous times allowing squatters into the premises. Something need to be done before this beautiful building is destroyed beyond repair.
