PLANS to maintain a temporary doctors' surgery in Upton will be decided next week.

Dr Wilson and colleagues at the School Lane surgery want to keep a temporary building for a further two years.

This will allow time for the construction of the new medical centre at Tunnel Hill. Permission for the centre was given last year.

Malvern Hills District Council will discuss the application at a planning meeting on Wednesday.

Planning officers recommend that permission is given. The application is being supported by Upton Town Council.
