Hub welcomes 150th visitor

10 April 2015

The Chase Farm redevelopment hub, which opened its doors last month following the meeting of Enfield planning committee on 12 March, welcomed its 150th visitor on Friday 10 April.

The hub, which provides information about the new hospital, is in front of the Clocktower building at the hospital and is open between midday and 4pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Visitors can inspect the plans, ask questions and leave feedback.

Feedback to date has been positive, with visitors particularly welcoming the investment in new facilities, the provision of new primary school places in the area and the improvement to the hospital’s energy efficiency.

As well as inviting visitors to the hub, the trust is running a series of tours around the site led by hospital director Fiona Jackson.

More information about the redevelopment hub and the site tours can be found on our website.
