Byfield Medical Centre Needs Financial Help.
The Byfield’s surgery planning application was put in front of the Daventry District Council (DDC) planning committee on Wednesday January 15th 2020. The recommendation before the meeting was to refuse the application but we believe the massive public support that turned up inside and outside the council office’s changed the outcome. After a two and half hour meeting the application was deferred because more information is needed.
Since then, Byfield Surgery has been in contact with DDC and Northamptonshire Highways to get the information required for the application to be put in front of Councillors again. Since the application first went to the planning the Byfield surgery partners have spent over £170,000 trying to get planning permission approved. To get the information required for the planning application to go forward again will cost Byfield Surgery about another £20,000.
If you want to help, a group of concerned residents will be arranging lots of fund raising events and meetings to speak to people face to face. You can donate securely on-line using your credit or debit card at:
or you can leave cash or a cheque made payable to “Byfield Medical Centre” which will go into the trust fund at the Medical Centre. There will also be local fund raising events and activities in the village. If anyone has any ideas on how to help raise funds with an event or other means than please let us know know through the WOW or Signpost. We will be printing flyers and posters to go around all the villages covered by the surgery.
All donations will go purely towards the costs incurred for the re-submission of the Planning Application NOT toward building costs. Any excess raised will be held in the medical centre trust fund and used for the benefit of patients.
This is the Patients of Today securing the future of our surgery for the Patients of the Future!
