Working with Lovel Developments (Yorkshire) Ltd, Apollo is providing development services for a Primary Care Centre in Willerby, near Hull. The project will provide a new building for the Willerby Surgery to enable the Practice to bring together its branch surgery in nearby Swanland and relocate to a new site. The building offers accommodation for the 8,500 patients and the forecast increase to around 11,500 patients following the completion of housing developments in the immediate area.
The project has received support from the East Riding of Yorkshire CCG with the approval of the Outline Business Case; a detailed planning application is due to be lodged shortly with construction planned for early next year.
Richard Drew, Apollo’s Development Director has lead the team, bringing together all the requirements of the project, preparing the OBC and agreeing the financial arrangements with the District Valuer. Local consultation events have been held ahead of the planning process.
Richard Drew said “This project has been a priority for the CCG and the Practice for many years with a number of previous false starts. This time around with the benefit of a site which our client Lovel Developments own and our development experience, we have been able to successfully offer our services and support to the whole team including the CCG and NHSE. The new building will offer the Practice a sustainable and resilient future; something which they are unable to do from their existing two surgery premises.”
Apollo is providing advice to Lovel Developments, whose main area of business is the delivery of land for development, on other potential Primary Care led projects in Yorkshire.
