The new Commercial & Development team led by councillor Julian Daly is progressing plans for the City centre site adjacent the Alban Arena.
As part of this, space is to be made for health services to be provided out of the Civic Centre offices by Herts Community NHS Trust. The services include those currently provided at St Albans Principal Health Centre on Civic Close, as well as the Leg Ulcer Clinic and Podiatry Service, located at St Albans City Hospital.
Councillor Alun Davies said: “I welcome the retention of important health services in the City centre. The transfer of services from the City Hospital will further bolster this and free up space for development there. This is a good example of joined up working initiated by Cllr Daly using Council space to support local services and commercial development.”
