The Church of England has asked for comments about plans to turn a sacred site in Hove into a doctors’ surgery.
The disused Holy Trinity Church at the junction of Goldstone Villas and Blatchington Road, Hove, looks likely to house two surgeries which are currently near by.
Brighton and Hove City Teaching Primary Care Trust (PCT) – also known as NHS Brighton and Hove – has already held an exhibition in the decommissioned church building about the plan.
Now the Church Commissioners are carrying out their own consultation.
They have invited comments about plans to use the church for “a medical centre, retail pharmacy, community health, dental services”.
Their consultation specifically rules out the building being used as a place of worship for other religions or as a bingo hall.
Anyone wishing to comment on the disposal plans should email Ross Brazier at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 2 June.
The PCT said: “The Church Commissioners are currently holding a national consultation regarding this church building being developed as a health centre.
“Once Church Commissioners consultation feedback has been received, we will – if appropriate – then need to apply for planning permission because the church is a listed building.”
