A PARTNERSHIP scheme to develop a multi-million pound health centre in Tregaron has reached the next stage of a long process.
Members of Ceredigion County Council’s cabinet received the draft full business case for Clych Caron Integrated Care Facility which is now with Welsh Government.
It will be used, if approved, to establish the grant funding levels for the scheme being developed by Ceredigion County Council, Mid-Wales Housing, Hywel Dda University Health Board and the Welsh Government.
Versions of the development have been discussed for more than 15 years, councillors had previously heard, with the official executive sign off made in March.
Cylch Caron will provide health and extra care provision under one roof with a GP surgery, community pharmacy, outpatient clinics, nursing services, long-term care and day care along with flats for people needing extra care to remain at home
The new building will replace the existing Tregaron Community Hospital, Bryntirion Resource Centre and GP surgery.
Once the level of grant funding has been decided, the Cylch Caron partners will each need to give final approval to go ahead with the scheme.
Council leader Cllr Ellen ap Gwynn said on Tuesday (Jul 30) that the full business case “had finally reached the cabinet.”
Cllr Dafydd Edwards added: “We’ve been working on this for too much time but so many people have been involved in this. The more fingers you have in the pie as it were, the more difficult it is to move forward.”
There was a call to ensure the Welsh Government moved quickly now to decide on the case so that the project could progress from Cllr Keith Evans.
