LHC was commissioned to redevelop the former recreation hall into seven new build town houses. An existing lodge will also be redeveloped to form new dwellings and a single townhouse will be erected at the rear of the site.

The recreation hall and lodges alongside have stood empty since the hospital closed and the proposals for the remaining undeveloped buildings aim to provide an appropriate use for this site which will ensure that the development can be completed to a high standard as befits this local heritage asset.
