No medical centre for Redhouse Village Centre

At this evening's developer community feedback meeting concerning Tadpole Farm, it has emerged that the PCT have not taken up their option for a new medical centre at Redhouse Village Centre.  There was a legally documented time period of six months for the PCT to take up this option and ORA believe this has now expired.
