Plans are being made for a major development of a former hospital in Ravenscourt Park.

Telereal Trillium want to convert the Royal Masonic Hospital into flats including ‘later-living’ apartments for older people.

The Grade II listed building was constructed in 1933 and was renamed as the Ravenscourt Park Hospital in 2002 but closed four years later. Plans were drawn up in 2015 for it to become the London International Hospital catering for overseas patients having surgery but the scheme failed leaving a trail of debts in its wake.

This has left the site as one of the largest available for redevelopment in west London. The developer says it is exploring a number of potential uses for the location but that any scheme will involve a ‘sensitive renovation’ of the building. It held a drop in event for people living next to the site on 6 October at which it released outline details of what it has planned.

Most of the blocks will remain as they are externally and will be converted to residential use. One more recently built block may be demolished and replaced with a new structure which possibly would be used to house a new care home.

The building at the entrance to the former hospital may be converted for community or cultural use.

No indication has been given of the likely number of flats that would be in the development.

Currently the intention is to launch a public consultation early next year with plans being submitted to Hammersmith and Fulham Council between March and May 2023 with a view to the proposals being considered by the borough planning committee at some point during the summer.
