WORK on Thurrock’s first Integrated Medical Centre will take a significant first step as site surveys get underway.
Beginning on 5 February, surveys in Civic Square, Tilbury will start to help inform the design and planning of the centre.
The work will include topographical surveys and assessments ranging from flood risk, utilities, ecology and transport studies over the next few months. Full public access will be maintained throughout.
Portfolio Holder for Education and Health, Cllr James Halden, said: “Our Integrated Medical Centres will provide excellent health services in modern buildings closer to where people live, and these surveys are an important first step. We are pleased that we have been able to work alongside Thurrock Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in this important work.”
Portfolio Holder for Regeneration, Cllr Mark Coxshall, added: “The Integrated Medical Centre and regeneration of Civic Square are key parts of our master plan for Tilbury. These surveys show our commitment to focussing on delivery and ensuring the local community benefit from these projects.”
