tp bennett secures planning permission for Fair Havens Hospice

Fair Havens Hospice, designed by tp bennett, has been granted planning permission by Southend Borough Council. The permission is for a new hospice and landscaped gardens on the old Ekco Radio site in Essex.

Fair Havens Hospice

The new hospice will be a stand-alone building which will provide a purpose-built 4,000msq specialist palliative care facility on a generous suburban site; part of a larger development by Bellway Homes. The hospice will include day-care and in-patient facilities, with family support and therapies; it will also act as the central hub for community-based palliative care services, out-patient therapies such as transfusions, infusions and counselling, an education centre for healthcare professionals, and support services.

The new building and gardens will enable Fair Havens to continue to lead the way in modern approaches to end of life care, to support patients and families at the differing stages of their lives, to do this both at home and in the hospice, where support and care will take place in an attractive and dynamic series of therapeutic spaces.

Chief Executive of Havens Hospices Andy Smith said: “We are delighted to have achieved this stage in our project to create a new home for Fair Havens Hospice. It has taken many years, tremendous hard work and a lot of support from many people and organisations to get here. We are very excited about the future for Fair Havens and the great opportunities the new buildings and gardens will give to our patients, families and staff.”

Fair Havens Hospice is part of Havens Hospices, which also includes Little Havens Hospice for babies, children and teenagers.

Jonathan Darke, tp bennett Principal Director, said: “This is a really exciting project that has enabled us to combine tp bennett’s experience of healthcare design with our experience in hotels, landscape, hospitality and workplace to arrive at a design that supports Havens Hospices forward looking approach to specialist hospice care.”

The beautiful site sits at the edge of the village, and has an open parkland feel. Our approach was to ensure that we placed great emphasis on the landscape so the house and site were considered as one.

New housing for Little Acre Developments, a three house development in Newhall. The houses houses respond to both the setting within Newhall and their position on the urban fringe. The properties take influence from both in terms of massing and materials from the urban and the surrounding woodlands.
