The Surgery – Where are we now? (Jan 2015)

The Healthy Living Group (HLG) was set up by Bishopsteignton Parish Council to find a replacement site for the village surgery when the current site on Church Road is vacated. Closure at Church Road is now scheduled for the end of 2015. Following the refusal of Teignbridge DC to grant Planning Permission for the Flow Lane site, The HLGroup have explored further the options available including the previously identified Plan B.

Plan B had been developed by HLG in order to provide a fall back option if the preferred site at Flow Lane failed to materialise.  Whilst Flow Lane remains the prime choice it would be irresponsible not to move forward with an alternative.

Plan B focusses on a development at Lawns End that would occupy a more level position between the existing car-park  and the playground – a very small part of the overall space at The Lawns. It would not impinge on the recreational area of the Lawns End field.

The Extraordinary Parish Council Meeting on 12 January 2015 requested HLG to look at other possible sites including the Play Area above the school at Cockhaven Close, Michaels Field and Cockhaven Mead. These three possible sites have been considered by HLG and further investigations are being carried out, however initial considerations strongly point toward a new structure at Lawns End to be the most practicable and feasible option.

In view of the urgency, given that Bishopsteignton Surgery will close at The Green on 31 December 2015, HLG are proceeding to prepare a Planning Application for a new Surgery to be constructed at Lawns End.

The Parish Council agreed to support this action at the meeting on 12 January.

It should be understood that this process is part of a potential two-way approach alongside a possible appeal by the Museum Trustees against the Teignbridge decision on Flow Lane.
