Full extent of Victoria Infirmary demolitions confirmed
January 19 2017Victoria Infirmary will be retained, (with the rest of the sprawling hospital set to be demolished), ahead of a series of public consultation events.
The confirmation of intent dovetails with finalisation of a consultation timetable by the housing and care provider following its acquisition of the hospital and grounds in August 2016. This will see a series of two day drop-in events staged at Langside Library, Sinclair Drive, beginning with a ‘masterplan’ discussion to be held on the 9th and 11th of February.
That will be followed by a more detailed look at the design on the 9th and 11th of March, all of which will be attended by representatives of both Sanctuary and Collective Architecture. Drawings of new build elements aren’t expected until a third round of consultations which are penciled in for the 23rd and 25th of March during which the proposed planning design will be exhibited.
Peter Martin, Sanctuary group director, said: “We’re very excited to have the opportunity to redevelop the old Victoria Infirmary site and are looking forward to hearing from the community at the six drop-in sessions.
“We understand how important this site is to local people and our aim is to create a development that fits perfectly in this landmark location.”
Members of the public are invited to attend Thursday sessions between the hours of 14:00 and 19:00 and Saturday events between 10:00 and 15:00.
