Northern Neighbourhood Community Centre Update

Dear residents,

As you may be aware, representatives from SODC and Taylor Wimpey attended the residents association meeting last week. We were informed that SODC are providing the extra funding to enable a larger community centre to be built and new plans have been submitted. Attached is the most recent draft layout and request that any comments/suggestions are e-mailed to the RA Secretary ( before the next meeting on 2nd May – the two representatives will also be in attendance at the May meeting.

Many thanks,

GWPRA Secretary

Northern Neighbourhood Community Centre Update

SODC have kindly agreed to provide additional funding which has resulted in the Northern Community Centre now having the activity room size increased to 100 square metres along with a hallway, couple of WCs, small kitchen and storage room. The hallway and extra toilet were agreed following suggestions made by Residents attending last night’s meeting along with a covered area outside the centre for the storage of buggies.

Taylor Wimpey are to redraw the plans and these will be made available for viewing towards the end of next week, I’ll make sure they are upload to the GWPRA website so you’ll get a chance to view them.

If all goes to plan Taylor Wimpey hope to have the building finished this coming September.

Overall this has been a successful campaign by the residents to get the centre built as a permanent structure, it was originally meant to be temporary, and increased in size to be more usable/fit for purpose.
