The future of Heatherwood Hospital

We have set out our plans for the future of Heatherwood Hospital along with our priorities and time frame. Thank you to everyone who attended our recent public engagement events at Ascot to give us your feedback and to everyone who has subsequently contributed.

It is clear that the local community is proud of Heatherwood's history and would like high quality hospital services to remain at the site for the foreseeable future. That is what we want too and we believe our vision provides the best chance of delivering them.

We made a number of changes to our plans shown in the section in response to public responses over the past year. For example we have:

  • Taken the 'woodland villas' out of the site design as people felt they did not fit the woodland setting.
  • Reduced the number of houses proposed
  • Retained a natural barrier between the hospital and nearby homes.
  • Lowered the roof height by about five feet to improve views.

The plans are now being considered by the Royal Borough and Windsor and Maidenhead's planners and we currently expect them to made a decision soon about whether to approve them or not.

If we do get approval we expect work to finish on the new hospital in early 2020.
