The Bulwell Joint Services Centre will be built by the Nottingham Local Improvement Finance Trust, a partnership between the local health trusts and John Laing.
The centre will be developed on a site on Main Street in Nottingham as part of the wider regeneration of the area and will replace the outdated Bulwell Health Centre.
Building work is expected to start in early 2009 and will take two and a half years to complete.
Lee Clayton, chief executive of Greater Nottingham LIFT Company, the project management firm commissioning the new Bulwell Joint Service Centre says: “We’re delighted our biggest and most ambitious scheme to date has now been given the go ahead and we believe it to be one of the highest value in the country to be planned under the Government’s Local Improvement Finance Trust scheme.
"We will continue to work hand in hand with our public sector colleagues to ensure it becomes a reality as soon as possible for the residents of Bulwell. The next step is to develop the designs in readiness to apply for planning permission in late spring next year. Including this new development we will have invested in excess of £70m in new health and local authority facilities for the people of Nottingham and have plans for much more.”
