Plans have been submitted for a new medical surgery in Loddon.

Church Plain Surgery is seeking full planning permission from South Norfolk Council for the construction of a new medical centre, car parking and landscaping and a new access.

If planning permission is approved the new surgery will be built on the health centre site in George Lane.

In May the EDP reported that proposals for a new £2.5m surgery building had been approved by NHS bosses.

At the time NHS Norfolk said the current 16th century building is “arguably the poorest and most inadequate main surgery accommodation in Norfolk” which is simply “not fit for purpose”.

The new plans would include 11 consulting rooms, a training room, a minor operations suite, dispensary, parking and other facilities. There would be space upstairs for a NHS dentist, a physiotherapy/midwifery room and an education area.

The building work is being paid for by the Church Plain Surgery partners who will own the new building and NHS Norfolk will pay them rent of £201,000 a year.
