The development of the new Catterick Integrated Care Campus has taken a major step forward with the submission of the planning application.

The centre will be built near the Camp Centre Roundabout in Catterick Garrison.

Enabling works are now beginning to prepare the site for the start of construction in spring 2023, starting with site surveys, the removal of asbestos, and the diversion of existing services from the area to make the site safe for the construction of a building of this nature.

The existing Baden Powell House will be retained and used by the project team, before being refurbished and used as the DPHC (North) Operational Centre.

The new facility, which is due to complete in autumn 2024, subject to business base approval, is being developed through a joint collaboration between the National Health Service (NHS) and Ministry of Defence (MoD).

The building aims to enhance the healthcare provision for the residents of Catterick Garrison, Colburn and the surrounding Richmondshire areas by bringing a range of health and social care services together under one roof in a purpose-built facility.

When complete, the building will house dedicated space for local GP services, community services such as paediatrics, adult and child mental health and physiotherapy, as well as providing external parking and landscaped green areas.

Designed to meet the latest building regulations, NHS and MoD Primary Healthcare standards, the new centre aims to be one of the first facilities of this scale in the area to meet net zero carbon standards.

The building will feature green technology such as low energy lighting, intelligent building management systems, electric vehicle charging points and roof-mounted photovoltaic panels.

Building firm Tilbury Douglas have been appointed to oversee the project and are working with BDP Architects and Planners, WSP and Hoare Lea on the scheme.

Shaun Paramor, project director at Tilbury Douglas, said: “We’re so pleased to be able to deliver the design and construction of the new integrated care campus, which will benefit the local community for many years to come.

“The submission of the formal planning application, which has been seamlessly co-ordinated by our design partners BDP Architects and Planners, is a major milestone for the project and the whole team involved.

“The concept designs are excellent and really show just how fantastic this new building will be, and the feedback we’ve received on the designs during our public consultation events has been overwhelmingly positive.

“Our focus is now on the enabling works, to ensure the site is fully prepared for the start of construction early next year.”

  1. Multimillionaire Chancellor has no choice but to back failing PM because his job is dependent on it. No such thing as honour or integrity or standing up for principles any more. A PM who has admitted to breaching his own rules, and has been fined for breaking the law is not fit to hold the highest office of state and should do the decent thing and resign. Good news though about the new long overdue health facility in Catterick, so long as the money is there to pay for it ! .
