Petition Remove green fields and agricultural land at Five Oaks from hospital sites
Remove the undeveloped green fields/agricultural land at Five Oaks from the final 5 development sites for the new hospital. This location has horrendous traffic issues already with all the schools and poor road connections to the western Parishes; the site is split with a main road down the middle.
As Islanders we need a hospital that can last for generations to come, a hospital that is easily accessed by all from any Parish: a central centre of health and welfare that can be driven to, walked to & accessed easily by public transport. A hospital in this rural location is too far removed from the denser areas of our population, the areas where higher levels of A&E cases occur. Traffic issues are potentially critical for many emergency health cases. Master-plan our Island properly for the future.
