RESIDENTS are being called to have their say on plans for a new 1,600 space car park near University Hospital Coventry.
A public drop-in event is being held on Wednesday March 28 at the Walsgrave Baptist Church on Hinckley Road.
It will present the latest plans to improve parking provision at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) – which has been much criticised in recent months.
Hospital chiefs say providing more parking spaces is ‘essential’ for enhancing patient experience.
The hospital trust has been working with development partner Prime VINCI on the proposals.
Early plans for the proposed car park were first shown to local residents in October 2017.
Developers say this event will provide the community with an opportunity to see how their feedback has helped to shape the latest plans and designs.
The engagement event is being led by Prime VINCI and architects Stripe, and will also be attended by representatives from UHCW NHS Trust.
The developers say the project team will be on hand throughout the day to answer any questions people may have about the proposed parking scheme.
Professor Andrew Hardy, chief executive officer for UHCW NHS Trust said: “We share the concerns of patients and staff about our current parking provision.
“The high demand for the parking we have on site means that patients often need to queue for a space, causing unnecessary stress before appointments.
“Improving the parking situation at our hospital is essential to improving the experience of our patients and visitors.”
The event will be held on Wednesday March 28 at Walsgrave Baptist Church (Hinckley Road, Coventry, CV2 2EX) between 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
