Revised Hospital Planning Application Submitted

Wednesday 18 April 09:14

A revised planning application for Jersey’s new hospital has been submitted.

The revised scheme incorporates significant changes to the original outline plan, answering concerns by the Independent Planning Inspector, the Environment Minister and some Islanders, about the scale of the proposed hospital and its impact on St Helier.

Key features of the revised scheme include:

  • a lower, wider footprint, significantly reducing the height to beneath that of the existing 1980s block, while maintaining the overall size for the whole project at 50,000 square metres
  • a three-storey base, with more storeys set back from the base to a height of six storeys in the centre of the site. This compares with the previous scheme of nine storeys

The new plans were drawn up following the rejection of the initial outline planning application for the hospital in January; they are available to be viewed on the States of Jersey website (reference PP/2018/0507), and will be considered by the Minister for the Environment in due course.

The project remains within the £466 million approved budget and within the proposed timetable for completion of clinical services in 2024.

A spokesperson for the project team said: “We’re pleased to have reached another important landmark in the project by submitting this application. We hope many Islanders will take the opportunity to have a look at the plans online, and we will also be holding further engagement events during the coming months where members of the team will be available to answer queries.”
