Public Consultation Event for the Outwoods Health Village Development

A consultation event was held by STRIDE for the redevelopment of the Outwoods site adjacent to Burton Hospital. The event, which was attended by local residents, Burton Council, Hospital Governors, senior staff and the local press was considered by all to be a great success.

The plans for the development and the benefits it will bring to both the Trust and local people were outlined in a presentation by STRIDE’s Development Lead, Neil O’Cuinneagain, who also took questions from the audience supported by our Partnerships Director, Kath Lee.

The evening was ‘very positive’ with great feedback received from local residents, as well as from the Council and the Trust.
