A LONG awaited project in Oaklands is a step closer to being realised.
Federation Council has purchased a building in the town to be transformed into a medical centre.
A doctor covers Urana and surrounds, and the new centre would allow a second doctor to operate in the area.
The council has received four tenders for the project.
The tenders will be considered behind closed doors due to the confidential nature of the information.
Government funding is available for the centre.
