The project aims are to completely regenerate this space into a useable garden area for the ward staff to bring patients outside and encourage them to exercise, grow and look after plants and relax. The scheme includes for new fencing to the perimeter and new lighting to path way.
The proposed refurbishment works will be carried out in the outside area adjacent to the Woodlands Unit at Queen Mary’s Hospital. The building provides services for mental health patients and will be occupied throughout the duration of the works.
The existing area is grass and paving. There is a wooden lodge building and medium sized gazebo along with large shrubs and a variety of benches. There are a number of manhole covers throughout the garden, which need to be hidden to maintain the aesthetics.
