Nelson Hospital – have your say

Here’s your chance to have a say on the redevelopment of the Nelson Hospital.

Sutton and Merton Primary Care Trust are expecting to open the new hospital by 2010 but its design not yet finalised. Merton Council’s Plan and Projects team are producing a planning brief for the project to guide the architects who will be drawing up the plans.

The brief will act as a design framework setting out how the council’s planning policies will be applied to the building and how the community will benefit from the redevelopment. It will also include guidance on how the new hospital should fit in with neighbouring conservation areas

Local residents are encouraged to drop in to either of two exhibition sessions on 23 March (see details below) to share their ideas and suggestions at for the final draft brief. It’s also a chance to hear about the council’s ideas so far and to raise any issues of concern or ask questions of representatives from the council’s Plans and Projects Team.

Thursday 23 March, 2pm – 4pm or 6pm – 8pm
Wimbledon School of Art
Merton Hall Road
