Following submission of planning in October 2017, Apollo have finally received full planning and conservation area consent for the new Llanbradach Primary Care Centre. This 750sqm facility will replace and enhance the services currently delivered in the town and provide security of service for the coming years. The planning consent came with its challenges with the site being in a conservation area and the current building and site being inhabited by protected species. Apollo has worked alongside Acer Ecology and the Local Authority to ensure the protection of the slow worms and the bats that were resident on the site. The new scheme will include measures to enhance the environment for future wildlife.
Site works are due to start in August 2018 with a completion anticipated for mid 2019. Rob James, Apollo’s Managing Director and project lead for Llanbradach commented “getting this scheme through the planning process has been very challenging with the conservation area status of the site along with the protected wildlife resident in the building and site area. We have worked with several specialist consultants to ensure the planners and local members had all the information to hand to make the decision and approve this scheme. We very much look forward to delivering this great scheme for the Village Practice, the Aber Practice and the local community of Llanbradach.”
