Plans for new cancer centre go on public display

Plans for a new 11-floor cancer centre are to go on public display in the Wirral, Liverpool and Aintree.

The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre (CCC) is planning to build a new 11-floor hospital, which will be located on West Derby Street in the heart of Liverpool city centre. Plans for the new centre have successfully gone through the initial public consultation process with nine out of ten respondents supporting the proposals. It is now time to tell the public more about the plans before applying for full planning permission.

Andrew Cannell, who is the chief executive of Transforming Cancer Care, explained to the press what they hope to achieve with these public presentations. He said:

“The exhibitions and information on the website are a fantastic opportunity for people to see the designs and comment on any aspects related to the planning application.”

Currently the CCC operates 10 specialist cancer treatment centres and is part of a NHS Foundation Trust that also runs The Walton Centre, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital and the Liverpool Women’s Hospital.

This new cancer centre is just one example of the many buildings for public use that architects on the Wirral are currently working on or have recently contributed to. The Wirral and Liverpool areas are undergoing something of a transformation with millions being pumped into the area to improve services and infrastructure. A great example of this new investment is the Wirral Metropolitan College Campus located at Wirral Waters that opened in September 2015.
