Chatham’s St. Vincent’s Catholic School, sitting vacant for several years, is about to become a care centre for the elderly.
At a recent planning meeting, Chatham-Kent council approved rezoning for the property to allow a 36-unit development to go forward.
Permission was granted to a company called Chatham Seniors Care Inc. for the proposed development located at the intersection of McNaughton Avenue and Prince Albert Road, that includes severing the building and 2.62-acres of property from the 6.5-acre parcel of land.
As part of the agreement, the owners will undertake landscaping and add parking spaces.
Currently, there are no official plans to develop the remainder of the property.
