Latest plans for Hythe Hospital on show 

Local people are being invited to see plans for the redevelopment of Hythe and Dibden Memorial Hospital on Tuesday 4th July.

The vision is to build a new Hythe and Dibden War Memorial Hospital on the footprint of the old vacant hospital building.  Current services in the on-site medical centre would move into the new facilities, making way for the surplus building and land to be separated and sold for housing development.

Chief Officer Heather Hauschild said “It’s encouraging that we are now at the stage where we can see what the new Hythe service might look like. There is still some work to do, but this is a chance for people to see plans for the proposed new building and hear about the progress of the project. They can also talk to the architects about the plans and NHS staff about the services that will be available.”

It is an opportunity to drop-in to hear about the progress of the project and see plans for the proposed new building.

A range of technical building consultants have been reviewing the draft layouts and working with the project manager, principle architect and town planner to finalise details the full planning application which will be submitted in mid-July.

Planning permission will take at least three months before the project is submitted to NHS England for approval.

People are welcome to drop-in to The Education Room at Hythe Hospital between 3.30pm – 6.30pm on Tuesday 4th July.
