Village Centre due to be handed over to council next week

The new £4 million Pelsall Village Centre is due to be handed over to Walsall Council on Tuesday, November 13 – a week after it was scheduled to do so.

The new Pelsall health centre and library

Sue Grainger, head of Libraries, Heritage and Art, said the delay arose because the council had insisted that all “snagging” work was completed before it took ownership of the building.

Following handover, it should take two weeks for the GPs to move in and begin to practise.

Once the adjacent High Street Surgery is empty, it will be demolished and a public car park formed on that part of the site.

It is estimated that this will take between eight and nine weeks (end of January).

Once the car park is complete the Library and Children’s centre can open for business.

The new building will house the library and include accommodation for the GP practices currently providing services directly to Pelsall residents. A resident Health Visitors team, clinical facilities for podiatry, physiotherapy, District Nurse consultation rooms and a range of multi-use, flexible clinical rooms will also be based there.

The centre will provide more than 30 car parking spaces for visitors and centre staff.
