RESIDENTS have reacted with dismay after controversial plans to convert a landmark Doncaster hotel into a care home were given the go-ahead.

The Woodborough Hotel off Carr House Road is to be turned into a halfway house for up to eight 16- to 18-year- olds leaving foster care, despite objections from householders and councillors.

Central ward councillor John McHale, who led the protests by worried Belle Vue residents, admitted he was ‘disappointed’ after the authority’s planning committee voted through the plans at the Mansion House yesterday.
