Board welcomes health centre proposal

The prospect of a new health centre in Mosgiel has been welcomed by the chairman of the local community board.

Bill Feather, of the Mosgiel Taieri Community Board, is pleased about developer Syd Brown's vision for a multi-service health centre.

If built, it will be part of Mr Brown's Highland Park subdivision in Hagart Alexander Dr.

''I applaud the developer Syd Brown's foresight,'' Mr Feather said.

It would be the only health service serving that end of town, he said.

It could be built opposite the yet-to-open Wee Nippers Early Childhood Centre in Factory Rd.

Mr Feather hoped the community board would support the proposal if it progressed to a solid plan.

The board had not discussed the matter.

It was good to see services planned to cater for Mosgiel's growing population, he said.

Mr Brown told the Otago Daily Times last week he was investigating the possibility of building the centre, but it was at an early stage, and no resource consent applications had been lodged.

Mr Brown said the centre could co-locate a wide range of personal care services, including a pharmacy, physiotherapist, chiropractor, dentist, cafe and GPs.
