A CAITHNESS care home could be expanded if a planning application is approved by Highland Council.

The Riverside House Care Home in Bridge Street, Wick, is seeking permission for a change of use of former shop premises beside its business.

The shop – previously a tobacconist and newspaper retail outlet – has not been used for over two years.

The property, which measures 44 square metres, would be incorporated as part of the care home and become a lounge, bedroom and hallway.

The plan is said to be under consideration by Highland Council.
