Bulldozers soon to roll in at King Edward VII Hospital near Midhurst

Demolition work is due to start in the next few weeks on the modern additions to the original listed King Edward VII Hospital near Midhurst.

Developers outlined progress in their programme towards the restoration of the historic 100-year-old hospital building at a recent meeting of the liaison group set up to keep residents and other interested parties in the picture.

Simon Vernon-Harcourt, from developers City and Country, said that following the bulldozing of the unwanted add-ons, the focus would switch to the repairs needed to the former sanatorium and its chapel, which is also listed.

The liaison group was established shortly after City and Country won planning permission, at the suggestion of the South Downs National Park’s director of planning, Tim Slaney.
