What is planned?
The new Score Centre site development, on Council owned land, will provide a significant number of new homes contributing to the borough’s housing need, with 50 per cent of them affordable. The proposal is that half of the affordable homes will be family homes of three or more bedrooms. It will also deliver an attractive civic square with shops and cafes, commercial space, a health centre and an enhanced sports and leisure centre with community facilities including, meeting rooms and a nursery.
The existing outdoor sports facilities and the food growing beds moved to the Feel Good Too Centre which opened in October 2018.
Feel Good Too has two artificial pitches, a 60 metre running track, six beach volleyball courts (four of which are international standard), a fitness trail and a pavilion which includes the discovery Café and a community room.
Who is doing the work?
The Council will be leading the redevelopment of the site but has selected Taylor Wimpey as its development partner for the delivery of this project.
Included in the partnership are Home Group (a housing association), Pollard Thomas Edwards (architects), dRMM (architects), LA Architects, grant associates (Landscape and public realm designers),POINT (daylighting and sunlighting advisers) GVA (Planning consultants), AECOM (Engineering consultants), CGMS (Archaeological specialists) and CBRE (Property and valuation advisers).
What happens when?
The next steps will be the development of detailed proposals, a programme of public engagement and the preparation of a planning application which is scheduled to be submitted in early 2019.
