Many of our buildings are no longer fit for 21st century mental healthcare. Our new facilities will provide better purpose-designed facilities for patients' care and recovery and for our staff. We will develop our Lambeth hospital site along with Mapother House, Michael Rutter Centre and the Professorial buildings on the Maudsley site, as new housing.
This will help meet the need for more local homes. More than half of the developments will be affordable housing. Our proposals, which are now with Lambeth Council, include over 500 much needed new homes 50 per cent of which will be affordable, and a new community space.
These new homes will help those on Lambeth Council’s waiting lists while providing investment to help us fund our major investments in new, better mental healthcare facilities and services.
