Assura Completes Redditch Redevelopment


Leading healthcare property developer and investor, Assura Group, has completed its latest scheme, the £3.55million redevelopment of Church Hill Neighbourhood Centre in Redditch, Worcestershire.

The 17,000 sq ft building was delivered in partnership with LSP Developments. It combines a number of different medical services in one centre on the first floor. The new facilities include a pharmacy, dentist and GP surgery, plus a number of retail units.

A further residential phase is currently being developed by Bellway Homes, and is expected to complete in 2014.

Dr McGregor & Partners’ relocation to the site has allowed the practice to increase its patient capacity by around 3,000.

Amanda Roddy, development manager at Assura Group, said: “Integrating services is crucial to relieving pressure on community primary care practices as well as hospitals. We’re pleased that the local communities have been so enthusiastic in getting behind improvements to their medical services; the new centre will provide a great deal of support to the area for years to come.”

Dr Catherine McGregor of Dr McGregor & Partners, said: “The increased capacity and high quality facilities will make a vast improvement to the services that we can offer. There was a lot of campaigning prior to the centre’s development, so it’s exciting to finally be experiencing the finished result.”

Ed Sutton, managing director at LSP Developments, said: “The expansion of the Neighbourhood Centre is a valuable addition to Redditch in terms of its public services, as well as optimising the convenience of primary care delivery for the Redditch community.”

The scheme was designed by architecture practice, West Hart Partnership.
