PCT scrap Great Harwood Health Centre

A report going to the PCT Board on Thursday, recommends that the proposals to build a new Health Centre in Great Harwood be discontinued.

This is disappointing but predictable news. The two key issues this repesents are:
1.) Dealing with the blighted site of Albion Mill (in the PCT's ownership) - which really needs to be demolished asap
2.) Engaging with the PCT about how it intends to address health needs in Great Harwood.

I'll be taking these issues up with the PCT. Coalition cuts are biting hard in East Lancashire an the choice to abandon growth and investment will be hugely damaging.
