Medical Centre Planning Application Success

McLoughlin Planning is delighted to be part of a team led by West Hart Partnership, assisting in the securing of planning permission for a new state-of-the-art medical centre for Stourport, on behalf of GB Partnerships.

Two current doctor’s surgeries will be merged into one. This new centre will feature 76 car parking spaces, electric car charging points and an on-site pharmacy and will care for 21,500 patients.

Our services related to providing the planning policy justification for the new Medical Centre, balancing the loss of Public Open Space and the partial location of the site in Flood Zone 2 with the compelling need for a new medical centre in the town. Our work drew heavily on previous experience of reviewing public open provision for the town and government guidance requiring the provision of essential infrastructure.

It is a positive result that will significantly improve the medical service provision for Stourport and the surrounding catchment area.
