A former care home could be turned into emergency accommodation to house vulnerable people.

Plans to convert Aldwick Rest Home in Aldwick Road into 16 flats have been submitted to Arun District Council for consideration.

The large three-storey Victorian building currently hosts 22 bedrooms, but these would be changed into 16 self-contained apartments.

The application is being put in on behalf of Adur and Worthing councils.
