Hundreds of homes for PDH?

Plans to transform the old PDH site into up to 550 homes after medical services move into the new Peterborough city hospital next year have been unveiled.

The City Council's starting a month long consultation on the plans on Friday April 9.

10 hectares will become available for development when the last medical services move into Bretton Gate by the end of 2011 - the first patients will be treated there in November this year.

Planning officers say the site could accommodate between 350 and 550 new homes, which would be a mix of family homes and apartments. A third would be affordable housing.

The plans also include shops and community buildings.

Historic buildings, such as the Gables and the core part of the Memorial Hospital would be saved.

You can have a look at the detailed plans at the city council offices in Bayard Place, in the Central Library on Broadway, and in reception at both hospital sites.
