The Harlow Alliance Party will campaign to:
- See Princess Alexandra Hospital relocated to another site on the edge of Harlow, a modern hospital which will cater for both present and future needs bearing in mind the increasing and ageing population of the area which it serves.
- Get ‘Sustainable’ public housing built on the site. With up to 500 new homes forming part of Harlow Council’s Local Plan, this would be a key element to the regeneration of Harlow Town Centre. Residents living in this new area would have less need to use their cars to get to work or to shop therefore not adding to the congestion on Harlow’s roads and air pollution.
Princess Alexandra Hospital has quite simply outgrown it’s site and it is widely acknowledged that the buildings are no longer fit for purpose in providing a health service in the 21st century.
