Bromsgrove dental surgery gets go-ahead for extension
7:30am Friday 13th December 2013 in Local
A BROMSGROVE dental surgery has been given the go-ahead for a first floor extension.
The application was to extend the New Road Dental Practise, based in a bungalow on the corner of New Road and Wellington Road.
The application was considered by Bromsgrove District Council's planning committee at its latest meeting held on Monday, December 9.
It proposed to extend the first floor to form a room to cater for the storage of patient records and hygiene products.
Councillor Caroline Spencer called it in for determination by committee members after concerns had been raised by the New Road neighbour to the site.
Discussions by members considered whether the site was already overdeveloped, particularly as the surgery was extended in 2012.
Councillor Sue Baxter said the site - a commercial development in a residential area - had seemed to have grown and grown.
But Councillor John Tidmarsh said that although he was sympathetic to the neighbours to the site, it was not unusual for a dental surgery to be based in a residential area.
He added that he thought the applicants had dealt with the issues raised by the neighbours in a sympathetic manner.
The application was granted after a vote was taken, and the majority of members voted in favour.
