MEMBERS of the council's executive will tonight decide whether to lease out land at the Burnholme Community College site to Priory Medical Group to develop a health centre, residential accommodation and car parking

The executive in May agreed to develop the Burnholme site as a health and wellbeing campus and retained sports provision.

Investment is already underway for a new Tang Hall library and community centre on the site and construction of the Burnholme Care Home will begin shortly.

Subject to consultation with patients, stakeholders and local people, the Priory Medical Group is looking to bring together its three practices in the area onto the site.

And it plans to provide an Urgent Care Centre for patients who need urgent and necessary treatment, which cannot wait for a routine GP appointment.

Patients of Tang Hall Lane, Park View and Heworth Green surgeries and the public are to be consulted over the design of the proposed health centre and see plans and comment on the proposals before it is submitted for planning,
