PLANS to build a new animal hospital on the site of a dilapidated milk factory in Bury St Edmunds have been approved by St Edmundsbury Borough Council.
Vets Swayne and Partners had applied to demolish two auxilary outbuildings and build a modern two-storey cladded steel hospital in its place at the former Dairy Crest milk distribution centre on Western Way.
The plans went before the council’s development control committee last Thursday.
The vets firm, established in Bury in 1976, employs 20 vets and 45 support staff.
Swayne and Partners has around 10,000 registered clients and has branches in Bury and three other West Suffolk towns.
