A full planning application for the £4.7 million new Dartmouth Wellbeing Centre has been submitted to South Hams District Council’s planning department.

The development, which will house Torbay and South Devon Foundation NHS Trust community services, primary care services, Dartmouth Caring space and a retail pharmacy is scheduled to start construction at the end of the year.

Launching the planning application gives all interested parties an opportunity to formally review and comment on the design of the scheme and will run until September 2, when the council will determine the application.

A spokesman for the NHS trust said: “The submission addresses key issues raised including maximising car parking in the adjacent park-and-ride scheme.”
