tp bennett secures planning permission for Fair Havens Hospice
tp bennett's design for Fair Haven's Hospice has been granted planning permission by Southend Borough Council.
The new hospice will be a stand-alone building on the old Ekco Radio site and will provide a purpose-built 4,000 sqm specialist palliative care facility on a generous suburban site. The hospice will comprise day-care and in-patient facilities, with family support and therapies; it will also act as the central hub for community-based palliative care services, out-patient therapies such as transfusions, infusions and counselling, an education centre for healthcare professionals, and support services.
Chief Executive of Havens Hospices Andy Smith said: "We are delighted to have achieved this stage in our project to create a new home for Fair Havens Hospice. It has taken many years, tremendous hard work and a lot of support from many people and organisations to get here. We are very excited about the future for Fair Havens and the great opportunities the new buildings and gardens will give to our patients, families and staff."
Jonathan Darke, tp bennett Principal Director, said: "This is a really exciting project that has enabled us to combine tp bennett's experience of healthcare design with our experience in hotels, landscape, hospitality and workplace to arrive at a design that supports Havens Hospices forward looking approach to specialist hospice care."
