TWO care homes in Portsmouth could be demolished to make way for state-of-the-art apartments for people with dementia.

As part of a £9.75m scheme the council will consider knocking down Edinburgh House and Hilsea Lodge, which are currently home to 40 residents, rather than spending millions trying to bring them up to scratch.

If the plans go ahead work on the site of Edinburgh House in Cosham will begin in October 2019 with provision for 50 apartments and facilities such as a shop, restaurant and hair salon.
