Plans submitted for Claregalway Primary Care Centre

Galway Daily news Claregalway Primary Care Centre gets planning approval

Plans have been submitted to the county council for the construction of a primary care centre in Claregalway.

Valley Healthcare fund, a sub fund of infrastructure investment fund ICAV, is seeking planning permission to build a two storey primary care centre at Cahergowan, Claregalway.

The county council last year refused planning permission Valley Healthcare to build a PCC in Claregalway, due to concerns about its size, and a lack of information on proposed roadworks.

This two storey proposal is smaller than the part three storey building previously rejected, and has been reduced in height by more than 2.5m, along with having a smaller footprint.

The primary care centre will have a retail pharmacy on the ground floor level, along with the consulting and treatment rooms.

The floor plans for the project show rooms dedicated for psychiatry, pediatrics, chronic disease management, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, psychology, physiotherapy.

Pedestrian and vehicle entry to the site will be via the Montiagh Road, and the development will have a total of 73 car parking spaces.

The works will also involve widening the Montiagh Road carriageway, and footpath links from the site to the junction with the N83 Galway Road.

A decision on this planning application is due from Galway County Council by November 14 of this year.
