A Bucks hospital could get a multi-storey car park if new plans are given the green light.

Stoke Mandeville Hospital has submitted outline plans to demolish two existing buildings – currently used predominantly as office spaces for the hospital – to make way for the four-storey car park “to address the hospital’s lack of parking” for staff and patients.

The application form says: “It is proposed to demolish the two existing prefabricated single storey buildings currently used as offices and replace them with a new, four-deck car park.

“The aim of this project is to address the hospital’s lack of both staff and patient parking.”

The existing buildings are single storey, with the site adjacent to a small car park and the hospital’s main entrance, according to the application.

The application also says the existing combined footprint of the two buildings 985m2, with the footprint of the proposed car park coming in at 1,926m2.

It adds: “This new footprint will encroach onto the adjacent services space behind the existing Therapies buildings.

“These services would be relocated to make way for the new car park.”

The staff in the therapies buildings, which currently sit on the site, will be relocated to a different part of the hospital if the plans are given the go-ahead.

The application form adds: “This site is an optimum location for the car park as it is situated adjacent to the hospital’s main entrance.”

If approved, the car park will have 185 parking spaces, with 10 disabled spaces and 17 reserved for staff parking.
