Plans for Newry Health Centre Outlined to Local Residents
Local residents and traders were invited to a public exhibition outlining plans for the proposed new Newry Community Treatment and Care Centre.
The event at The Master’s House, Abbey Way, adjacent to the proposed site, was hosted by GPG O’Hare, a Newry-based health care consortium, which is centrally involved in the development.
Jitesh Patel, from the London-based health care developers, Kajima who have entered into a partnership arrangement with GPG O’Hare, as well as Joan McCoy, an architect, David Mount Stephen, a planning consultant, and Kevin McShane, a roads and traffic consultant, were on hand to answer queries.
Senior members of the GPG O’Hare management team also attended. Local councillors and MLA were invited as well.
The exhibition follows on from talks between the Consortium and local politicians, who had raised a number of planning issues, including proposed traffic and parking arrangements in an around the care centre.
Almost 500 leaflets were distributed in the immediate area of the proposed site alerting the public, and local traders, to the exhibition where images of the new health centre were on display.
A spokesman for the Consortium said: “This exhibition is part of an intensive consultative process and is in response to any concerns.
“The new Community Treatment and Care centre is going to be a fantastic new health care facility for Newry, and the surrounding area.”
