Peterborough 10ha development under consultation

Peterborough City Council has begun a four week public consultation on plans to redevelop four parcels of land currently occupied by the city’s main hospital.

A 10ha site in the Thorpe Road area of the city will be available for development when remaining medical services are transferred to the new Peterborough City Hospital at Bretton Gate by the end of 2011.

In partnership with property specialists King Sturge, City council planning officers have suggested the site could accommodate between 350 and 550 family homes, apartments and shops close to the city centre and proposed Station Quarter development area.

The outline schemes suggest retaining historic buildings such as the late 19th century psychiatric ward building The Gables and the core part of the Memorial Hospital, as well as improving pedestrian and cycle routes.

The four land parcels included in the proposals are: the main district hospital and Memorial Hospital site; the existing maternity unit; medical staff accommodation accessed from Holdich Street; and a car park area off Alderman’s Drive.
