First views of Bewdley Medical Centre plans
7:00am Friday 16th August 2013 in News
THESE images show how the new Bewdley Medical Centre would look if plans are given the go-ahead.
The facility, which could include a pharmacy, consulting rooms and child facilities, would be built on a section of the town’s Dog Lane car park.
Building work is set to start in the autumn if the proposals are passed by Wyre Forest District Council. The planning process is expected to be completed by the summer.
The present medical centre is based at Load Street.
Dr Simon Gates, partner at the medical centre, said: “It has been widely publicised how much we believe a new medical centre will benefit Bewdley and the surrounding area.
“We are, therefore, pleased to be entering into the next phase of the planning process by submitting plans for a 21st century building that people in and around Bewdley deserve.
“The plans are subject to a 12- week consultation period and are available to view on our website and within our waiting room.
“We look forward to any further feedback on the proposals, which already have huge support locally.”
The new medical centre was originally going to be built in Wribbenhall but the plans had to be shelved following uproar from residents, who wanted the facility to remain in the town centre.
