Three properties essential for the development of the new hospital at Overdale have been purchased on behalf of the public of the island.
Deputy Chief Minister Senator Lyndon Farnham, Chair of the Our Hospital Political Oversight Group, said: “I welcome the news that we have completed a successful negotiated purchase of these three properties, which were originally marked for compulsory purchase.
“I would like to thank all parties involved for their co-operation, which will ensure that the Our Hospital project can continue to move forward for the benefit of all islanders.”
A further seven properties are due to be purchased in the coming weeks.
Ministerial Decisions have been signed by the Infrastructure Minister today to give notice, in accordance with Standing Order 168 of the States Assembly.
