Work has started on the construction of a new medical centre in Cromer after the council confirmed the sale of land, which paves the way for the £3.5 million development, has been completed.
The GP surgery and pharmacy will share the Mill Road site with Cromer Football Club and form part of a community healthcare hub with nearby Cromer Hospital, which sits on the opposite side of the road.
It will include more than 60 car parking spaces, with more than half set aside for free parking for patients.
The new fit-for-purpose medical centre, which will replace the nearby practice in Overstrand Road, is expected to take 12 months to complete and open in March 2018.
North Norfolk District Council leader Tom FitzPatrick climbed into a JCB for the sod-cutting ceremony on Thursday. He said: 'It will help with over crowding.'
