The former Gravesend and North Kent Hospital in Gravesend could be turned into luxury homes according to a planning application submitted by the NHS to redevelop the building.

In the application NHS Property Services to Gravesham Borough Council has proposed building 80 new homes on a 0.35 hectare section of the derelict site, now "surplus to NHS requirements", in Bath Street near the centre of Gravesend.

The hospital officially closed in 2006 following the opening of Darent Valley in Dartford. Around the same time, Gravesham Community Hospital, which is unaffected by this application, was built on part of the site.

In addition to the 80 homes, the plans also feature a small shop, cafe or office on the ground floor, and a landscaped amenity space for people living there to enjoy.

Neighbours to the site will be invited to comment on the plans as part of Gravesham Borough Council’s planning application process before councillors decide whether to approve it.

Kieran Kinsella, head of investment management at NHS Property Services, said: “It’s time this prime site was given a new lease of life and this proposal is an opportunity for a landmark development of much-needed new homes.

“It would release vital funds for the NHS through the eventual sale of the site and is a chance to turn an empty site that is surplus to NHS requirements into something far more beneficial for the local community and the taxpayer.”
