Community Centre Update

On 13th March members of the Residents Association attended a meeting being held regarding the proposed community centre for Great Western Park. During the meeting, representatives from SODC and Taylor Wimpey outlined their plans to build a permanent structure on the site of the proposed temporary building. As we had suspected, the proposed size is small to say the least and we feel that it would not accommodate many community groups or clubs – the dimensions are approximately 10m x 7m.

Those of us who attended the meeting did not agree to the proposal of the smaller building and have asked Taylor Wimpey to look again at extra funding for a larger building. Failing that, we have asked to be involved in the consultation for the building specification/location etc. As such, we thought it would be appropriate for Toby Warren of SODC and the Taylor Wimpey representative to attend our next Residents Association meeting on Thursday 4th April at 7.30pm, Didcot Civic Centre. Please make a note of this in your diaries and make every effort to attend in order for our views to be taken into account!
