Boyer, acting on behalf of NHS Property Services, has been successful in obtaining a resolution to grant an outline application. The application proposes the redevelopment for part of a former hospital site in Gravesend town centre of up to 80 apartments and a commercial unit.

NHS Property Services’ role is to manage the disposal of the former hospital site and to secure best value on behalf of the NHS. Boyer, through being responsible for the design and the project management of the application process, successfully developed a positive dialogue with planning officers which enabled us to optimise the development potential of this sustainable site which will greatly assist in the regeneration of this part of Gravesend. Due to the existence of the former hospital buildings, we were also able to successfully make the case that the Vacant Building Credit applied which significantly reduced the affordable housing requirement.

Following this positive outcome, the NHS are now in the process of marketing the site and hope to complete the disposal of the site by Spring 2017.
