HEALTH CENTRE IN THE WOODS NIPPED IN THE BUD

Plans to build a Health Centre in woods off Mill Lane and The Street in Hawkinge have been rejected by Parish Councillors at their monthly meeting this evening (14 September).

The two storey Health Centre and Pharmacy is planned to replace the ageing Hawkinge Health Centre in Canterbury Road.

A uninanimous vote against the application cited a failure to comply with planning policy prompting councillors to 'strongly' object to the plans.

The Parish Council will be suggesting the applicants consider siting the building o­n the employment land off Haven Drive, where outline plans for a Health Centre has already been granted.
