AN eyesore site in Wellington could be turned into retirement homes after an eagerly-awaited development got the go-ahead.

McCarthy and Stone got the green light to turn the derelict former Wellington Medical Centre at Bulford into 42 later living apartments by Taunton Deane's Planning Committee last night (January 9).

The application was expected to get refused but was granted subject to developers contributing to affordable housing and recreation facilities.
