Green Light for Hospital?

The development of the South Bristol Hospital could take a giant step forward this week. The City Council’s planning committee will meet on Wednesday to decide whether to approve plans for the hospital at Hengrove Park, along with proposals for City of Bristol College’s Skills Academy. Dawn has submitted a statement of support to the committee, and is urging residents to do the same:

"After years of waiting, we’re within touching distance of getting our hospital. It’s so important that councillors on the planning committee know how needed the hospital and the skills academy are to our part of Bristol. That’s why I’m calling on residents to submit statements in favour of the development to the committee. We know that people in Bristol South support these plans. Over 7000 thousand people signed my petition to get this scheme moving again, and I’m pleased to say that the Council has really got behind the hospital in the last few months. In a sense, Wednesday will mark the final hurdle to clear. If the committee passes the plans, we could see building work begin later this year. That will be a magnificent achievement, and no less than residents deserve."

Statements have to be submitted by noon on Tuesday, and residents are encouraged to attend the meeting at the Council House on Wednesday 12 March at 2pm to make their views known. Please contact Richard Jones, Democratic Services, The Council House, College Green, Bristol, BS1 5TR or email if you would like to submit a statement or attend the meeting.
