Wolverhampton dentist submits extension plans
A dentist from Wolverhampton has submitted plans to expand her existing practice. Dr Sharon Nandra is hoping to convert two floors of a building adjacent to Rock House Dental Practice to create two new dental surgeries.
Currently, the surgery has two treatment rooms, but if proposals to extend are approved, this will provide additional space for two extra surgeries on the first and second floors, which are vacant. The ground floor is rented out and used as office space, and this arrangement will remain the same if the plans are given the green light.
Mrs Nandra confirmed that she is looking to use the first and second floor of the Rock House building to house two new surgeries, a project, which will not alter the internal or external structure in any way. The ground floor already has tenants, but the remaining spaces have been empty for some time, and would provide an excellent base for treatment rooms. There is already a 20-space car park on-site, and no additional spaces would be required.
Discussions with planning officers prior to the submission have not thrown up any major issues, and Mrs Nandra is hoping that the plans will be welcomed by local residents and councillors.
Rock House Dental Building opened in 2007 and was approved as part of a project to convert office and training facilities into a dental practice.
The plans are currently being evaluated by officers at Wolverhampton City Council.Join this Discussion
