Plans for a new medical centre in Netherfield were given the green light last night after winning unanimous approval at a council planning meeting.
Gedling Borough Council has agreed to let the new development in Ashwell Street go ahead and councillors were full of praise for the design of the new centre.
Now plans have been approved, the new medical centre and also a pharmacy will be constructed along with associated car and cycle parking facilities, sub-station and planned landscaping work.
The new centre is expected to cost around £3m, which will be indirectly paid for by NHS.
Assura, has been chosen as the developer who will construct the new surgery.
Senior development manager, Andrew Cooper, said earlier this year: “With more patients using this surgery and with significant new housing growth expected to continue, the GPs need a building which can offer them flexibility and more space for the future – especially given the NHS’ strong focus on delivering a bigger range of services closer to home.”
