Public Land for Public Good: Bootham Park

Public Land for Public Good: Bootham Park

https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/public38/images/mp.gif
The publicly owned estate of Bootham Park Hospital should be retained within the health sector using the One Public Estate programme for developing integrated health and social care services.

Accept the proposals put forward by York Teaching Hospital in co-operation with City of York Council to continue providing healthcare for the people of York and to provide affordable and social housing for key-workers who are NHS staff.

Why is this important?

A sale of the land to the highest bidder will not deliver the social value that is so desperately needed.

Considering the land is adjacent to the acute hospital and is available to reconfigure services to deliver cost effective and modern health care, with a new transitional care unit, urgent care and extra care facilities, with accommodation for the third sector and to retain the public grounds as a new public park for York.

Reasons for signing

  • This is a fantastic building and land site where my brother used to work while i was growing up in York - Local consultation in it's future is paramount to secure a just and fruitful value to York and it's residents.
  • A beautiful interior, wood panels, lovely tiled floors. Outside doesn't do it justice.
  • This is an essential facility for our area
