Planning application and listed building consent application submitted for the DNRC

December 2012

The planning application and listed building consent application for the redevelopment of the Stanford Hall Estate as a Defence & National Rehabilitation Centre (DNRC) have been registered by Rushcliffe Borough Council, the local planning authority.

Submission of the applications follows comprehensive technical work and wide-ranging consultation with the local community, statutory organizations and interested parties since the site was acquired for the programme in autumn 2011.

The planning application is a hybrid submission seeking detailed planning permission for the development of the Defence establishment and outline permission for the National facility.  The listed building consent proposes various works to the listed buildings on site.  The unique benefits of the proposed DNRC for clinical rehabilitation come as a result of the Defence and National facilities being in close proximity on the site, creating the opportunity to raise standards in clinical healthcare and deliver better rehabilitation outcomes for injured armed forces personnel and civilians.

It is expected that the applications will be determined by Rushcliffe Borough Council in the first half of 2013.

Pre-application public consultation on the draft proposals took place between 7 July and 3 August 2012 with more than 350 people visiting local exhibitions to view and comment on the draft plans.  If planning permission is granted and fundraising targets are achieved, a decision from Government on whether to proceed with the creation of a DNRC is expected in early 2014.
