RNOH to submit planning application for its Stanmore site
The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust (RNOH) is preparing to submit a planning application to the London Borough of Harrow (LBH) in the summer of 2012.
The planning application, which will be in the form of a masterplan, aims to replace the outline planning application as it no longer secures the best outcome for the Trust, given the change in health provision and reduced hospital requirements.
Rob Hurd, chief executive, said plans are at an early stage and will include proposals for a new hospital development and residential development, including staff accommodation.
“We are keen to ensure that we consult widely with our key stakeholders and encourage as many people as possible to attend a public exhibition to find out more about the proposals,” he said.
The two-day public exhibition will be held in the RNOH’s Sir Herbert Seddon Teaching Centre on Friday 20 April from 14:00 – 19:00 and Saturday 21 April from 10:00 – 14:00.
The new planning permission seeks to permit the re-provision of exemplary healthcare facilities together with the transfer of surplus floor space to residential use in order to achieve the maximum potential land receipt.
A dedicated email address has been set up to take on board any feedback and respond to queries from patients and the public: RNOH@deloitte.co.uk
