Plans to turn of­fice into new med­i­cal cen­tre re­vealed

Macclesfield Express - - HEART OF THE COMMUNITY -

PLANS have been sub­mit­ted to trans­form an empty of­fice build­ing into a med­i­cal cen­tre.

Or­bit De­vel­op­ments has ap­plied to Cheshire East Coun­cil for per­mis­sion to change the le­gal use of Green­way House on Tyther­ing­ton Business Park from an of­fice into a med­i­cal or health cen­tre.

The lo­ca­tion off Lark­wood Way ben­e­fits from 150 car park­ing spa­ces around the build­ing. The two-storey build­ing boasts almost 2,600 sq m of space.

The ap­pli­ca­tion also in­cludes ex­tend­ing the open­ing hours from 7am to 8pm Mon­day to Satur­day.

Or­bit, which has a base in Alder­ley Edge, is land­lord and de­vel­oper of Tyther­ing­ton Business Park. The company has strug­gled to fill Green­way House the only build­ing left to let fol­low­ing As­traZeneca’s exit from there in 2011.

Or­bit is now con­sult­ing with neigh­bours on the business park in­clud­ing Kids Un­lim­ited Nurs­eries on Spring­wood Way.

A new med­i­cal cen­tre will be a wel­come ad­di­tion to the area with hun­dreds of new homes be­ing build over the com­ing year. The near­est GP surg­eries are in Bolling­ton and Wa­ter’s Green.

Rent­ing the whole build­ing would cost almost £30,000 ev­ery month.

Cheshire East Coun­cil­lor Lloyd Roberts, who rep­re­sents Tyther­ing­ton ward, said: “It looks like Or­bit feel with the de­vel­op­ments com­ing to Tyther­ing­ton there is a need for a med­i­cal cen­tre. If there is a need and it will ben­e­fit the com­mu­nity then I am all for it.”
