WORK is now underway on a new £500,000 health and retail development in Larkfield.

Long serving pharmacists AC Still are investing in new premises in Burns Square, on the site of the former Elizabeth Martin Clinic.

They are planing a 166-square metre pharmacy with a dental surgery and a shop and 17 car parking spaces.

AC Still had been based at Cumberland Walk, which is due to be demolished.

The chemist is currently based in Angus Road until the new premises are built.

Planning permission was granted last April for the development.
