Half Moon Dental Centre: Appeal for Support in Planning Application

Half Moon Dental Centre have asked the Forum to share details of a planning application they are submitting to expand their premises upstairs.

They would like to expand into to one bedroom flat above, but have been declined planning twice before due to loss of residential space. They are asking the planners to see the bigger picture in terms of what the expansion would offer the community and local business. If they are unable to secure expansion, they would have to scale back on NHS services to cope with demand.

They hope that the community would see the retention of NHS dental services in the area as a good justification to offset the loss of residential space, and that expanding their premises could also help drive footfall to other businesses in the area.
