The City of London Planning and Transportation Committee (CLPTC) has granted planning consent for the new Maggie’s Centre at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London.

The idea behind the cancer centre at St Bartholomew’s Hospital was proposed by Barts Health NHS Trust to enhance the quality of care for cancer patients across north-east London.

Located next to the Great Hall, the Maggie’s Centre will improve welfare access and facilities in the area.

The centre was designed by Steven Holl Architects and Donald Insall Associates, and includes a three-storey urban townhouse with full open space and light, and a roof garden with flowering trees.

Maggie’s Centre will also feature a new garden designed by Christopher Bradley-Hole that will be open to patients, staff and the public.

"This will be an important first phase in our vision to restore the historic North Wing and establish a heritage quarter."

Maggie’s CEO Laura Lee said: "We very much welcome the Committee’s decision and are truly thankful for all the support our scheme has received.
