Planning & Design Practice Ltd were delighted to receive planning permission for a three storey extension to the Treatment Centre Building at The Queens Hospital, Burton-on-Trent.
The Hospital site is situated on the western side of Burton-on-Trent and is accessed off Belvedere Road.
The Belvedere Road Site was originally developed and opened as Burton’s 4th hospital (Burton District Hospital) in 1971. In 1990, a £34 million capital development began to re-develop the Belvedere Road site and include all the facilities housed at the General Hospital which opened in 1942 so the old General hospital could be closed. The new Burton Hospital was completed by the end of 1993, and opened officially by Her Majesty The Queen on December 7, 1995. The following year the hospital changed its name to Queen’s Hospital.
The application for a new 3-storey, modular building, is linked to the existing Treatment Centre. It will have an overall floor area of 3,967sqm and have a flat roof. The ground floor internal layout has been agreed. It includes 28 new beds and will allow the centre more capacity for elective surgery.
The Building will be supporting local communities and will enable the NHS to deliver the operating capacity required to enable the Queens site to develop and have the capacity it requires to keep ahead of the growing needs of the local health economy.
Planning & Design are delighted to get the permission through for the NHS, where a first class new ward facility has been secured at a challenging time for the NHS.
Over the last 20 years we have worked for many District and Unitary Local Authorities, Government Agencies, Parish Councils and the NHS. We are pleased to be working as planning consultants for the Derby & Burton Hospitals University Foundations Trust to deliver new buildings & facilities across Southern Derbyshire & East Staffordshire. In the past 12 months we have secured permission for a 3 storey ward extension across the front of Derby Royal Hospital, and we are currently working with the Trust, Derby City and East Staffordshire Council to deliver a new medical centre; further ward extensions and a multi-storey car park.
