Major advances in redevelopment of St Ann's, Haringey
Date: 28 June 2018
Over the last few weeks there have been major advances in the plans for the redevelopment of St Ann’s Hospital in Haringey.
Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust has agreed the sale of part of the site which is surplus to NHS needs to the Greater London Authority (GLA).
The GLA will develop the surplus land for housing, with at least 50% of the new homes being designated as affordable housing. 22 of the flats to be built will be available to the Trust to use to help recruit clinical staff.
The Trust has also recently received final Planning approval from Haringey Council this year for the new mental health inpatient building, to replace the current three adult wards and specialist eating disorders ward.
This follows a lot of work with patients, carers and staff and the Trust’s design and build partner, Integrated Health Projects. Following final approval, expected in the summer this year, construction of the new mental health building will commence in early 2019, with completion by early 2021.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: As Mayor, I’ve set out how City Hall will take a more active and direct approach to unlocking sites across the capital – and at St Ann’s we are showing what this can achieve. Not only will my intervention unlock this site, but it will also allow us nearly to double the number of homes, and crucially increase six-fold the number of affordable homes that had previously been given planning permission. I am pleased my investment will see the redevelopment of a new mental health facility”
Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust Chairman, Michael Fox, and Interim Chief Executive, Andy Graham, said “This is very exciting news for the Trust, our patients and our staff. It means that the current wards at St Ann’s Hospital will be replaced by brand new, state-of-the-art facilities, which will be amongst the best in the country”.
