Grade II* listed art-deco former hospital set for redevelopment

Proposals for the part conversion and part redevelopment of the former Ravenscourt Park Hospital located in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham (LBHF).

The application has been submitted on behalf of applicant TT Group (TTG), acting on behalf of Ravenscourt (Stamford) Property Limited.

Ravenscourt Park Hospital was constructed by the Freemasons between 1931 and 1933 and is Grade II* listed (1192740) and is constructed in the Art-Deco architectural style. The listed hospital buildings comprise four interconnecting blocks in a distinctive T-shape block.

The site fell into disuse in 2006 and the building is on the Historic England Buildings at Risk Register.

Currently, the site benefits from a Public Transport Accessibility Level (PTAL) of 3-4 on a scale of 0-6b, where 6b is the highest. According to the TfL’s online WEBCAT Tool, the PTAL rating is expected to remain at this level, based on a forecast for 2031. The predominant PTAL for the site is 3. The scheme has been designed with approximately 40 residential car parking spaces including disabled car parking. The basement car park is accessed from Ravenscourt Square via car lifts.

Key elements of the proposed scheme include; 140 new dwellings, a new 65-bed care home and associated landscaping and public realm improvements. The proposal includes affordable housing on-site, with 21 shared ownership units proposed.

A full reserved matter planning application was submitted to LBHF, towards the end of 2023 with the scheme likely to be considered before the council’s planning committee in late 2024 or early 2025.
