Residents object to new Barnes Hospital development plans

Categories: East Sheen,East Sheen News,News

A group of concerned residents are urging people to object to the plans for the redevelopment of the Barnes Hospital Site on South Worple Way. The developers are planning to build 83 housing units, a mental health facility, a special needs school and 81 car parking places on the site. 

Local resident Sarah Beeching writes, on behalf of a concerned group of local residents: “On Christmas Eve, whilst we were hanging out our stockings, a comprehensive plan to redevelop the Barnes Hospital Site on South Worple Way was posted on line. The deadline for objections is 1 February 2019. The site will see the construction of 83 housing units, a mental health facility, a special needs school and 81 car parking places. Access/exit to the site will be via South Worple Way (by the White Hart Lane level crossing).”

“Whilst the community do not want to see this site derelict” – writes Sarah – “the transport and traffic plans are totally unacceptable for this density of buildings. The result will be gridlock in the surrounding area and pollution and that is without taking into consideration the impact of the Stag Brewery Site or the Manor Road (Homebase) redevelopment which will see over 380 new units.”

The residents produced a leaflet which sets out their concerns and provides a link so that you can object if you think this development, as it currently stands, would adversely impact our neighbourhood. 

If you would like to submit your comments, you can find the planning application here on the council planning site; also by searching for “Major developments” or for application No. 18/3642/OUT.

There have been previous consultations about the Barnes Hospital site, which we covered in this previous post below.  

The residents’ group will be taking advice from experts. If you would like more information as this progresses please email: barneshospitalplanning@gmail.com and they will keep you informed.
