Dartford Borough Council, Kent County Council and NHS Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley CCG are working together to bring forward the redevelopment of a major site in Dartford Town Centre, creating a new and vibrant area which will enhance the existing retail and night time economy. Derelict public sector land will be utilised to create a mixed use development providing new homes, jobs and other services.
Central to this town centre redevelopment is a new integrated health and social care campus. The new campus will enhance existing service provision and improve wellbeing by providing local care, treating physical and mental health needs, seven days a week, thus reducing demand on acute care services.
The funding awarded by OPE, £70,000 in revenue grant funding, will support the delivery of the health and social care campus specifically enabling the masterplanning works for the scheme to take place.
