PLANNING permission for the �100m redevelopment of Lister Hospital in Stevenage is set to be granted at a meeting this evening (Tuesday).
Stevenage Borough Council's planning and development committee will meet at 6.30pm to discuss the matter.
The proposed redevelopment is the result of extensive consultation which saw Lister win out over the QEII in Welwyn Garden City for the consolidation of emergency services on a single site.
The plans also include the expansion of maternity services, the creation of a multi-storey car park, and the building of a new main south block.

The redevelopment has been recommended for approval by the council's planning officers, but The Highways Agency has said road improvements would have to be made to cope with anticipated increases in traffic.
Subject to planning permission, the redevelopment of the Lister site is set to be completed in 2015.
