Consultation on new car park plans near Worcestershire Royal Hospital

A COMMUNITY event which will showcase plans for a new car park and access route close to Worcestershire Royal Hospital will take place on July 17.

Residents are invited to find out more about the plans of the multistorey car park and access road off Nunnery Way (A4440).

The drop-in information session will take place at Hall 2, Lyppard Hub, Ankerage Green, Worcester on Wednesday July 17 from 1pm – 7pm.

Prime plc, is working alongside Worcestershire County Council to devise a parking and access solution which will ease traffic congestion on roads surrounding the hospital and support the development of a new secondary school on land to the east of the hospital.

They intend to submit a joint planning application for the school, an 850-space multistorey car park and new access and exit road onto the road.

The road will allow entry to and from, the car park and create the potential for new ‘blue light’ route for emergency vehicles to reach and leave the hospital.




Feedback from residents could be used to influence the next stage of designing the development, and deepen the team’s knowledge of the local community and its needs.

Guy Kippen, associate development director for Prime, said: “Prime’s offices are based on the doorstep of the proposed development.


“Our staff live and work in the area, travel to work on the same roads as the local community, their children attend local schools, they receive care at Worcestershire Royal Hospital, and enjoy taking walks in woods, meadows and fields around the site.

“We have a vested interest in working alongside Worcestershire County Council to deliver a joined-up solution for the area which improves journeys, increases access to parking, provides a much-needed new school, while doing everything possible to protect wildlife and the community’s experience of wild spaces.

“We believe we have a great plan to do just that, and we look forward to showing our proposals and talking to the local community about them at the event on July 17.”
