SaveWycombeHospital campaign group call for support to protect land on which Wycombe Hospital stands
Campaign group SaveWycombeHospital are calling for supporters to sign two petitions to protect the land on which Wycombe Hospital stands.
Both petitions relate to a consultation on the New Local Plan which sets out the policies which will help to map out the future of the Wycombe district and which will be used to guide local development and planning decisions for the next 15 years. The consultation, organised by Wycombe District Council, closes on Monday 27th November 2017.
The first petition calls to ‘Protect Wycombe Hospital Land‘ with the removal of paragraph 5.1.139 from the New Local Plan which SaveWycombeHospital believe puts the hospital at risk of redevelopment.
The second petition calls for the ‘Expansion of Wycombe Hospital as an option for a full consultation on the Office Outlet site‘. The Office Outlet site (formerly Staples) is next door to Wycombe Hospital. The local plan mentions redevelopment of the Office Outlet site. SaveWycombeHospital ask that there should be a full public consultation on the use of the office outlet site with the expansion of the hospital e.g. staff car park and full maternity unit as options.
Anyone wishing to sign either of the petitions are requested to do so as soon as possible and before 3.00pm on Sunday 26th November 2017 so the petitions can be submitted in a timely manner before the consultation closes.
The petition to Protect Wycombe Hospital Land can be found here.
The petition to allow the Expansion of Wycombe Hospital as an option for a full consultation on the Office Outlet site can be found here.
