Next Steps

The following timeline outlines our next steps in our development process. We are continuing to progress detailed designs of the scheme as we work alongside community stakeholders, Moorfields Eye Hospital, UCL IoO and the London Borough of Islington.

  • February / March 2023 – Consultation events for the community to provide feedback on our evolved proposals.
  • Summer 2023 – An update on the evolved proposals prior to the submission of a planning application.
  • September 2023 – Final stage of public consultation.
  • Late 2023 – Plans are prepared for submission to the London Borough of Islington.
  • 2024 – Anticipated decision from Islington Planning Committee.
  • 2027 – Moorfields and UCL IoO to vacate the site and relocate their services to their new centre in St Pancras.

If planning permission for our plans is granted, we expect building work to commence in 2027. We anticipate that construction of the new building will take around 4-5 years.

We will continue to provide updates on our timelines as the project progresses.
