Two large parts of Queen Mary's Hospital site set to be sold
TWO large parts of the Queen Mary’s Hospital site in Sidcup are set to be sold.
Subject to contract, a 3.1 acre portion has been sold for the development of a residential nursing home and a planning application has been submitted to Bexley Council.
Another 16.8 acre site containing a Hyde Housing residential development is likely to be sold to the housing association.
Oxleas Foundation Trust took over the running of Queen Mary’s from South London Healthcare Trust on October 1.
A spokesman said: "We are required to complete these sales as part of the agreement for the transfer of ownership of Queen Mary's to Oxleas.
"We are investing up to £30 million over the next five years to ensure the hospital has a bright and sustainable future.
"This is far more than the receipts of the land sales and we will be building new facilities including a radiotherapy unit.
"We are not currently marketing any further areas of the site for sale and have no plans to do so."
