After years of uncertainty councillors have agreed to demolish Heatherwood Hospital.
First used as a hospital in 1920, the building has gradually been worn down, with the closure of the Ascot Birth Centre, Minor Injuries Unit and stroke rehabilitation ward all signalling the end of the line.
And now £90 million plans for a new hospital, as well as 250 homes, have been approved by Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead councillors.
The closure of the hospital in Ascot, Berkshire was first agreed in 2013 following a lengthy consultation, despite several campaign groups fighting against the plans.
But the project was finally approved almost four years later, on Friday, December 22.
