The latest plans by University College London Hospitals (UCLH) for redevelopment of another hospital site in Fitzrovia are to be unveiled tonight at a development management forum. Residents and community groups have been invited to attend a presentation of the latest plans and ask questions to the developers and Camden Council’s planning officers.

Dawn Allot of Camden Council has written to community groups saying: “I am writing to invite you to a meeting of the Camden Development Management Forum about a redevelopment proposal for the former Royal Ear Hospital, Capper Street and the former Student Union building 43-49 Huntley Street, WC1E.”

The plans are for the demolition and redevelopment of the University Union and the former Ear Hospital to provide a 6-storey outpatient hospital for the treatment of ear, nose, throat, head and neck diseases.

The Forum gives local people the chance to see what is being proposed and give their comments before a planning application is made. After a presentation by the developer there will be an opportunity for you to ask questions and to give your views on the proposals.

UCLH and has been criticised by community groups for outstanding section 106 obligations relating to a previous planning application by UCLH and Camden Camden has been criticised for not taking action to deliver the planning obligations. Camden has also been criticised for exempting UCLH from affordable housing obligations.

The meeting will take place tonight (Tuesday 7 October) at 7pm to 9pm in room 3c, Student Central, University of London Union, Malet Street, WC1E 7HY
