Fairmile Hospital opened in 1870 on the edge of the River Thames. It was acquired by the Homes and Communities Agency as part of the transfer of 96 NHS hospital sites.
This is a very positive development, achieving a good balance between housing, heritage and regeneration.

The site comprises a number of high quality, Grade II* listed buildings as well as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Gardens of Special Historic Interest and grounds on the Register of Parks.
The HCA appointed Linden Homes for the site’s new build development and Thomas Homes for the conversion and refurbishment of existing buildings, with JTP subsequently appointed as their masterplanners.
