Demolition due to start on site of axed Clevedon hospital
Demolition work is to start next week on a former supermarket building, on the site once earmarked for a new Clevedon hospital.
NHS bosses have announced that work to demolish the former Kwik Save shopping complex at Millcross is due to start on Monday.
The site, which was purchased by North Somerset PCT for £1.5 million for the new hospital has become a target for thieves and vandals over the past year.
The project will involve demolishing all the buildings on the site, lasting four weeks and costing NHS North Somerset around £45,000. But it will then save around £54,000 in annual maintenance and security costs while the organisation decides what to do with the site.

The area will remain enclosed by hoarding during and after demolition and NHS North Somerset will continue to maintain the green space and trees around the site as well as retaining security patrols to look after it. The future of the site has been in question following a decision by NHS chiefs in the summer to abandon plans for a new £15 million hospital on the site on the basis it was no longer affordable.
