Wyre Forest District Council has confirmed the sale of land at Dunley Road, Stourport-on-Severn for the new medical centre which will provide a 21st century home for the town’s GP practices and other primary health care facilities.

The council’s Cabinet agreed the sale of the land for this purpose at its meeting on 16 July 2019.

The receipt of £300k is in line with the assessed market value of the land and will be applied to the council’s Evergreen Investment Fund which provides a sustainable source of funding for future investments in approved projects.

Councillor Fran Oborski, Cabinet Member for Economic Regeneration, Planning & Capital Investments said: “I am delighted that the sale of the land has been completed and that Stourport will now be able to benefit from modern facilities for GPs and primary care, as Bewdley and Kidderminster have already done. We have achieved market value for the land and will be able to use the receipt to invest in other worthwhile capital projects in the district.”

The planning application for the new medical centre was approved by the council’s Planning Committee on 10 December 2019.
