HEALTH HUB PLANS WILL CREATE JOBS AND BOOST CITY CENTRE ECONOMY
Plans are being drawn up for a proposed Health and Wellbeing Centre in Plymouth’s West End which could be a huge boost for local businesses.
Plymouth City Council and NHS Devon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have joined forces to develop plans for a new, purpose-built health, care and wellbeing centre in the in the vicinity of Colin Campbell Court.
The centre would include a range of services all under one roof in a convenient location. The new building would not only provide a much-needed modern health and wellbeing facility, it would also help kick-start the regeneration of the area.
Steve Hughes, chief executive of the Plymouth City Centre Company, said: “With the huge changes facing our city centre due to the retail climate, a new facility like this is just what we need. It will create jobs and drive footfall, bringing new customers to our businesses in the West End of the city.”
The scheme is still at an early stage but the joint team developing the proposal want to hear from local people and businesses about services and facilities they think could go in the building, and are running a local engagement programme until 4 July 2021.
