New Health Centre Proposal

The site of the former Greenwood House Nursing Home in Burntwood is being proposed as the new base for the Darwin Medical Practice, which is currently based in Hudson Drive.

This purpose built facility would include 13 consulting rooms, five treatment rooms and a health education space. There is also an adjoining pharmacy planned.

A public exhibition, which will be on display between 4pm and 7pm on the 18th of September at Burntwood Memorial Institute on Rugeley Road will give everyone the opportunity to see and comment on the plans and design prior to an application for planning approval being submitted.
Outline details will be also available at www.staffordshire.gov.uk./greenwoodhouse from September 18 for anyone who is unable to attend.

It is anticipated that the new facility could be completed during 2020 (which will mean the Greenwood House facility will have lain idle for 12 years…)

This is a great opportunity for residents of Burntwood to ensure that the design of the new building is in keeping with the local area; so please go along and make your views known.
