The principal changes detailed in these documents are a reduction in the number of houses proposed from 90 to 78, the inclusion of 10% of properties to be “affordable housing” and a change in access to the development from two entry points (Woodford Road and Church Street) to one (Woodford Road).

    This practice supports a large rural area with many patients who would be seriously disadvantaged if challenged to travel further afield to get medical treatment. There can be no justification in denying the practice the opportunity to upgrade and develop the surgery in its current location. We receive excellent patient care from a dedicated team which must be allowed to continue to serve the community in which it is based.

    I am in full support of the Byfield Medical Centre planning application. The area needs a modern medical practice with everything necessary to continue to provide it’s excellent service to the community. Should the practice be forced to close it is doubtful that all the patients will find alternative medical care within the local area.

        I have just written to say we need a Medical Centre that is fit for purpose in the 21st century serving 8300 registered pateiets and 35 surrounding villages. The current surgery was built for 4000 patients!
