This project combines all the village medical offers: pharmacy; medical practices (general practitioner, physiotherapist, osteopath, dentist, nurses) and 14 new apartments (of which 10 will be preserved ‘in heritage’ by the Village). The new Medical Centre was part of the electoral programme of our current Mayor, Mr Christian Ruffinatto on a site less sensitive than in 2013. It is being constructed between the school and the multipurpose hall (‘Salle Polyvalente’).
As a matter of principle, the Association wanted to be involved with this project and make sure that our voice was heard. Indeed, the proposed architecture was so urban (Photo 2) and so flagrantly contravening the rules of the PLU, the association made a gracious appeal in 2016 against the Building Permit.
This appeal was not transformed into litigation following negotiations with the City Council. We have indeed agreed essential modifications, such as the respect of the PLU, the degression of the height of the window bays... (Photo 1)
The filing of a Modified Building Permit approved these amendments. Construction work started in September 2017 and will be completed by the end of 2018. (Photo 3- January 2018) It was agreed that the association be invited to the meetings confirming the choice of improvements.
