Plans for Benhome expansion

From the Maitland Mercury report:
Maitland aged care facility Benhome will have a facelift worth $17.5 million.
Plans for the expansion of the Maitland Benevolent Society-owned facility on Regent Street have been lodged with Maitland City Council.
Benhome has a waiting list of more than 100 people, but the ­renovations would provide space for an extra 44 residents.
According to the application, the existing single storey aged care building, the Ribee Wing, would be replaced with a two-storey building that will feature 26 ground-level rooms, including sitting rooms, lounge areas, dining areas and ­utility rooms downstairs.
