Project Description

New Elective Treatment Centre



Elective Treatment Centre Chapel Allerton Hospital Leeds

DPP were appointed to advise Kier Construction and the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust to gain planning permission for a scheme to create a new elective treatment centre and facilitating works at Chapel Allerton Hospital. The development comprises an extension to create a new theatre and car parking facilities. The new Elective Theatre will support the reprovision of accommodation for the world-renowned Leeds Institute of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Medicine.


DPP advised Kier on planning constraints, particularly surrounding the complexities on a live hospital site, providing strategic planning advice. DPP also prepared and submitted a formal pre-application advice enquiry and managed the enquiry to ensure relevant advice as the scheme significantly evolved during the pre-application process.  

DPP has prepared and submitted a planning application for the Extension of Chapel Allerton Hospital to create a new elective theatre and the creation of a car park. DPP is managing the application.
