Community drop in sessions being held for new development on Calvert Lane
The Hull Trinity House Charity grounds previously used as school playing fields have been out of use for several years and there is a long term plan to redevelop the site and put the land back into use.
Hull Trinity House Charity and Citycare have been working together to bring forward a co-ordinated development for housing and a new primary care health centre to accommodate the Springhead Medical Practice (now part of the Modality Partnership), community services and a pharmacy.
Hull City Council continues to develop a sustainable long term housing supply
for the city as part of its local plan to deliver the anticipated housing needs for 2021 and beyond. This site has been identified as a potential for housing within the draft local plan.
Why a Health Centre?
The Springhead Medical Practice currently operates from an old converted terrace house and converted shop units which have poor accessibility for patients, not enough clinical space and fall short of modern day infection control standards.
In recent years other branch surgeries in the Willerby Road area have closed.
The practice list size is now just short of 17,000 and growing. A new building would give the practice modern, purpose built premises to deliver a wider range of services within the community for the future.
The centre will also include capacity for community services and a pharmacy so that patients can enjoy a range of health and care services under one roof.
We have explored utilising the existing Calvert Health Centre, however extension
options are not viable and the current vacant space is already earmarked for other service relocations. Early work explored the Wymersley Park area as a potential location, but feedback gathered at the community consultation events told us that due to the loss of green space this would not be suitable.
Further investigations identified a number of alternative sites, however many of these were discounted due to size, location or availability.

Have your say
All organisations involved will be holding two drop in sessions:
Tuesday 11th April
Calvert Health Centre
110a Calvert Lane, Hull
Thursday 13th April
2pm – 7pm
Springhead Park Golf Club
Willerby Rd, Hull
The information events are an opportunity for you to meet the team behind the plans, ask any questions and provide feedback on the proposals.
If you can’t make the drop-in sessions you can also send your comments/questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01482 974333.
Feedback from these events and consultation with statutory consultees will help
shape the detailed proposals for this development.
We anticipate we will submit an outline planning application in May 2017 and all
residents will have the opportunity to comment on the formal application under
the statutory process.
Subject to outline planning approval, we hope to share detailed proposals
of the housing layout and health centre design in late 2017.
