Redevelopment Plans

St Peter’s Healthcare Campus Consultation

Redevelopment proposals for part of the St Peter’s Healthcare Campus

Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust intend to secure planning consent for the redevelopment of surplus land for housing at the St Peter’s Healthcare campus in Chertsey.

This presents Optivo with an exciting opportunity to upgrade and expand our current affordable accommodation for NHS staff on the campus, and we are working closely with both Trusts to achieve this.

The proposals

The focus is largely on the western part of the St Peter’s Healthcare Campus which is jointly owned by Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

This area currently houses a range of community mental health services for people of all ages and a drug and alcohol detox unit. These will relocate within the local vicinity, and people who use these services will be involved in deciding where best suits the services’ needs. The area also houses old administrative and service buildings, housing for staff, and derelict areas.

The redevelopment proposals include:

·        297 open-market homes consisting of a retirement village and a mix of apartments, and houses. These will make an important contribution to much-needed new homes in Runnymede

·        around 60 new affordable homes, primarily for NHS staff

·        a new, separate access road from Holloway Hill to the north west

·        a new village green

·        redeveloping housing on the eastern part of the campus to provide 72 modern affordable apartments, primarily for NHS staff

·        options for accommodating parking on and off-site for around 250 spaces.
