Plans for a £20m expansion of Stratford Hospital have been submitted to Stratford-on-Avon District Council.

South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust wants to build a new clinical centre on the existing car park.

It also wants to demolish supporting buildings to make way for a new car park for 250 vehicles, plus a building to power the new facility.

The new three-storey clinical centre would offer cancer treatment and eye-related services.

The trust decided to push ahead with the scheme in February.

If approved, work could begin in November and the whole project finished by October 2016.

The main hospital building would not be affected and would remain open throughout the work.

Patients in South Warwickshire currently have to travel to Warwick Hospital for cancer treatment.

Consultation is expected to have been completed by the end of September.
