Castlemead plots next health job
The specialist developer intends to build a primary care facility of 10,600 sq ft on the edge of Waunfawr, to the south east of Caernarfon.
The application, which goes before Gwynedd Council’s planning committee next week earmarked for approval, includes a part single-storey and part two-storey L-shaped building that will include community areas, meeting and changing rooms as well as a doctors’ practice.
Developing the scheme will allow an existing GP surgery to relocate to a purpose-built facility from Liverpool House in the centre of the village, expanding its number of employees from 29 to 35.
Haford Planning Consultants has advised Wrexham-based Castlemead on the project, which is designed by TACP Architects.
As the facility will be built on currently agricultural land, a new access to the A4085 will be included.
The site is located outside but directly near the Waunfawr development boundary as noted in the Anglesey & Gwynedd joint local development plan, 2017 but it has not been designated for any specific land use.
It also lies within the Caemabynyr wildlife site that includes partially improved grassland, marshy grassland and broadleaved trees.
Current Castlemad projects include a further GP and community health facility in Kelsall, Cheshire; where it is also working with provider Sanctuary Homes on a 29-home retirement community.
