Hospice disappointed after Bosham parish council objects to plan

Have your say

HOSPICE officials have been left disappointed after plans for a new building were opposed.

St Wilfrid’s Hospice has responded to Bosham Parish Council’s objections to its plans for a new £12m development in the village.

The parish’s planning committee decided to object to the bid.

The hospice in Chichester is applying to Chichester District Council to put up a building at Oakcroft Nursery in Walton Lane.

Chief executive Alison Moorey said: ‘While we’re disappointed to hear that the parish council has decided to object to our plans, we’ve been heartened by the warm responses from many of our supporters in Bosham along with many local residents, who do support our exciting plans.’

A spokeswoman added: ‘The building – whose design will be sympathetic to the architecture of the locality – will be set back from the road and surrounded by attractive planting, transforming the site and approved by the immediate neighbours.’
