Edenfield and Prestwich Hospital


Edenfield and Prestwich Hospital

Greater Manchester West NHS Foundation Trust

Lichfields was appointed by the Trust to deliver a new Recovery, Health and Wellbeing Academy at Prestwich Hospital. The new facility accommodates and enhances the Trust’s existing education and training functions and acts as a central ‘hub’ for the Recovery Academy. The facility will also enable the relocation of Trust Headquarters to more appropriate and inspiring accommodation. Lichfields also secured planning permission for a replacement adolescent unit at the former McGuiness Unit and provision of a Step Down Unit.
Lichfields secured planning permission for a number of significant extensions to the Edenfield Hospital complex to deliver new medium secure care facilities. The site is designated as a Major Developed Site in the Green Belt and we successfully argued acceptability of the development against Green Belt policy and compatibility with the surrounding built form.
Lichfields has consistently secured a number of important planning permissions for the Trust. Guiding us through the planning process, providing a professional and personal service working collaboratively with all team members and the Local Planning Authority.
