Patients are set to receive treatment at a new £3.5m medical centre meeting modern healthcare needs in Cromer.
The long awaited facility was given the go-ahead by North Norfolk District Council Development Committee members today.
Cromer Group Practice is now set to move from its existing premises on Overstrand Road to nearby Cabbell Park.
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. It will be about twice the size of the existing medical centre, built in 1969.
The new surgery will provide extra consulting rooms and parking spaces, helping to meet what developer Medcentres describe as an 'increasingly desperate community need.'

Committee member and ward councillor Nigel Pearce said: 'The local community is expanding and ageing and the current doctor's surgery is over capacity. This facility is much needed and sought after and I fully support it.'
