GP Medical Care In Woodford and the Surrounding Area
A new, extended, medical centre is part of a planning application for additional houses in Byfield. The application is opposed by Byfield Parish Council but the Medical Centre believes it will have to close if it cannot expand as proposed. It is only possible to fund the new medical centre as part of a new housing development which is making land available for a new centre.
The date for comments on the planning application that will prevent the closure of the Byfield Medical Centre and improve local access to medical services has been extended to Friday 1st November.
Information about the planning application is available here.
Send Your Support
If you want to help ensure that Woodford continues to have a local GP practice you need to support the application. Woodford cum Membris Parish Council has already voted unanimously to do so. The most effective way to show your support for this is by writing to the Daventry District Council planning department as advised in this letter. Individual letters and comments can carry as much weight in the planning process as the Parish Council’s comments. You can comment on-line here by clicking the link “Comment on this application” about halfway down the page.
Our local MP, Chris Heaton Harris has already sent his support, as has the MP for South Northants, Andrea Leadsom.
