Phase One: Hebdon road

Phase One: Hebdon Road

The first phase of development at Springfield University Hospital is a residential development comprising of 26 new homes.

Bellway Homes, the site developer, have begun to prepare the site and construction is scheduled to be completed in Autumn 2017.

All 26 properties will be terraced houses of two to three storeys in height, with those nearest Hebdon Road a similar size to the existing houses. There will be eight two-bedroom properties, and eighteen four-bedroom homes. The homes will have front and back gardens to provide privacy buffers and to contribute to the quality of the public space.

This phase is carefully designed to fit with the wider site masterplan and meet the requirements of the heritage landscape at Springfield.

  • The planning application for this phase is available to view on Wandsworth Council's planning website:
  • Reserved Matters application - reference number 2014/6584
  • Variation of Condition application - reference number 2014/6585
  • Condition application - reference number 2014/6586

Development arrangements

We are working hard with the site developer, Bellway Homes, to reduce the impact of disruption and noise during this development work for our neighbours, patients and staff. Some of our commitments are:

  • Reducing vehicle trips by keeping as much spoil material as possible on site
  • Providing a space to store building materials and equipment which would otherwise have to be brough to the site daily
  • Registering the site with the Considerate Constructor Scheme
  • Providing regular progress updates in partnership with Bellway Homes
  • Ensuring the site is kept tidy

Bellway Homes is also required by Wandsworth Council to comply with a strict travel plan. This includes the movement of construction vehicles to enter and exit the site via the larger entrance at Burntwood Lane (as access via Glenburnie Road would mean these vehicles navigating through some narrow residential streets).

Springfield redevelopment

Springfield Hospital Redevelopment

We have planning consent to redevelop and regenerate our main site at Springfield University Hospital.

Part of the site will be used for our proposed new mental health inpatient unit. The rest of the site will be used to create new houses and provide extra green space for our local community.

The redevelopment of Springfield is a major programme of investment in the local community, which will take until approximately 2023 to complete.

We have promised to work with people living near to Springfield during the redevelopment. If you would like to be contacted about the programme, or if you have any questions, email us.

Transformation

Our goal is to create a centre of excellence for mental health services by building new inpatient facilities at Springfield and to expand the community services we provide so we can deliver care closer to home.

The new inpatient buildings will be funded by disposing of those parts of the site no longer needed for healthcare and this land will be used to deliver a new community within the Springfield site. Our vision for the future of the Springfield site is an attractive new mixed-use community, combining healthcare and residential neighbourhoods in a parkland setting. 

We adapted the original plans after listening to the views of local residents and Wandsworth Borough Council. We reduced the density of the housing, reduced the amount of commercial and retail space and made the overall development more in keeping with the surrounding area. Our revised application was approved in June 2012.

The development will bring a broad range of benefits to both our service users and the local community:

  • A new state of the art mental health centre - replacing outdated facilities to provide our patients with the best possible care
  • 839 new homes - delivering high quality homes for the community
  • A new 32 acre public park - providing excellent outdoor space for the local community
  • A brand new primary school - investing in local children's future
  • £5 million for local transport services - boosting transport links for local residents 

The first stage of the development is already underway with 26 new homes to be completed by Autumn 2017. 

The Trust has now selected one master developer to deliver the rest of the programme. The Trust selected the master developer in September and will now work alongside them to contract close. The announcement of preferred bidder marks a significant milestone in the development of the EMP, and enables the proposals to be finalised for a full business case to be submitted to Government for approval

Partnership

Our Trust is working closely with local community groups, health organisations and the council to ensure our patients, service users and the general public are kept well-informed of the changes being made on our sites.

We recently held a public consultation on our detailed plans for the Springfield Hospital site and the exhibition boards can be viewed below. 

Regular updates are also provided through our Springfield Messenger newsletter which is delivered to residents in the local area.

Please email regeneration@swlstg-tr.nhs.uk if you would like to be added to our e-newsletter mailing list. You can also view the e-newsletter version by clicking here.
