POLICY EP20 - Land at Seaford Court (Malvern Community Hospital)

  1. Land at Seaford Court (located at the junction of Worcester Road and Osbourne Road, Malvern) is allocated for the development of a Community Hospital (within Use Class C2) and the provision of health services / other uses directly related to the proposed hospital use.
  2. Land at Seaford Court will be safeguarded for use as a Community Hospital indefinitely and the use of the site (either in whole or part) for alternative development or use will not be permitted unless it can be clearly demonstrated that:-
    1. the land is genuinely surplus to requirements of the Health Authority with respect to meeting the future health care needs of the area in the longer term;
    2. commensurate or alternative health services have been provided at another location or locations within Malvern;
    3. the proposal represents genuine enabling development required to bring forward theprovision of the Community Hospital and that it is compatible with the primary use of the site and the surrounding area. In order to be acceptable proposals will also need to demonstrate that, in addition to meeting other Local Policy requirements, they will not constrain the provision of the full range of health services which could be provided by a Community Hospital on the site in the longer term.
  3. Development proposals for Seaford Court and the surrounding land should reflect the character of the Trinity Conservation Area, the existing building line and form of development along Worcester Road and maximise the location’s potential to enable journeys to the site by means other than the private car.
  4. Seaford Court (the existing main building) should be retained and re-used unless it can be adequately demonstrated that the building and its setting cannot be accommodated within proposals for the comprehensive development of the site to provide a community hospital. Proposals for the demolition of Seaford Court will only be permitted if detailed proposals for the re-use of the site, including any replacement buildings, car parking and other structures have been approved.
