The requirement for a primary care centre in Cahersiveen is being examined.
Cork Kerry Community Healthcare has sought to progress a primary care centre in South Kerry town since 2008, however, technical and legal issues arose at various stages.
Late last year, revised documentation was forwarded to the healthcare group.
In response to Kerry County council, Cork Kerry Community Healthcare says it’s close to finalising the requirement for a primary care centre in the region.
No projected timeline for a decision has been provided.
