Alderhey development

Alderhey Statement…
What we’ll do with the old hospital

We’ll demolish the old hospital, recycling around 95% of the material. We’ll transform the site into new parkland, handing back to the community the green space we ‘borrowed’ for the new Alder Hey.

Information from the Architects here

As the complex is built, the parkland will be replaced so that the same amount of green space will be left but it will be better organised.
