• Save the Dartmouth Hospital Site



News Release – NHS and local council join forces to seek local people’s views

Dartmouth Town Council is spearheading the campaign to ensure that Dartmouth residents get a fair chance to express their views on what should happen to the Hospital site, part of which was gifted to people of the Dartmouth. Along with NHS Trust we will shortly be announcing the dates and venues where you can have your say. As we wait to inform you of the Community Conversation arrangements, we have uploaded all the correspondence we have sent to and received from the NHS Trust.

We have set up this page to keep you updated on our campaign and give you the resources to play your part in ensuring the hospital site is used for the benefit of everyone who lives here. This campaign can only succeed if as many residents as possible make their opinions known to TSDNHSFT and we work together to find a solution.


NHS and local council join forces to seek local people’s views.
Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust and Dartmouth Town Council are working together to explore whether the community can buy the former Dartmouth Hospital site, and whether its redevelopment could include uses specifically to benefit people in and around Dartmouth.
They now want to hear about what new facilities local people would like to see on the site.
The survey can be filled out here – https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/DartmouthHospital
Printed copies can be obtained from various locations including: Dartmouth Town Council offices; Blackawton Community Shop; Stoke Fleming Village Hall; Townstal Spar; Dartmouth Medical Practice; Dartmouth Clinic; Kingswear post office; Townstal BP Garage.

Dartmouth Town Council’s Save Our Hospital Site Campaign has already had an impact, thanks to the support of Dartmouth residents, as the first stage of our campaign has been successful! As always our town has stepped up to the plate to protect the places that are important to everyone who lives here. The NHS Trust has listened to us and has agreed to reschedule the public engagement process from September through until mid-November. This new timing will ensure that Dartmouth residents will have the best opportunity to express their opinions on how the site should be used to benefit the town. We will continue to update you on when and where you will be able to express your views on the future use of the hospital site as soon as we can. In the meantime Dartmouth Town Council is continuing to work alongside several other local groups and the NHS Trust to ensure that the best outcome for the town is achieved. The Council will be working to ensure that the existing covenant on the Hospital site is honoured. This is not the end of our campaign; in fact these community conversations will be when the engagement and participation of everyone who lives here is vital if we are to secure this site for the benefit of our town. So please continue your support and when the community conversations are announced, attend and make sure you have your input into the sites future use.
