The Apollo Capital Projects” scheme in the Rumney area of Cardiff has been submitted for detail planning consent. A decision is expected in August 2011 with work due to commence in early 2012. Apollo recently secured the former Castlefileds site in Rumney from Cardiff Council for the 2400sqm development. The scheme will include Primary Care facilities for the Rumney Medical Practice and Cardiff & Vale University Health Board. In addition, a pharmacy will be located in a linked building to allow convenience to patients. The development will become the largest single site practice in Cardiff with over 15,000 patients and growth potential for up to 17,000 patients.
Rob James, Apollo’s Procurement Director said:
“The Project Group are delighted to have reached this significant stage on this project and are looking forward to a positive outcome from planning which will be the springboard to the next stage of the scheme and onto construction”.
The scheme was approved by the Welsh Government in late April 2011 and is due for completion by early to mid 2013.
