The scheme includes a variety of new community facilities located at the heart of the redevelopment which reflects feedback received from residents, stakeholders and focus groups during the previous Masterplanning process.
Facilities will be located close to sustainable and public transport links, will have their own dedicated car parking, and where appropriate, will overlook public open space. This will maximise accessibility and ensure long term sustainability of facilities and services.
The new facilities will include:
- leisure complex and sport facilities - opened October 2021
- community centre
- nursery/children's centre
- health centre/pharmacy
- assisted living accommodation
- shop units and a local convenience store built around a public square
- family pub /restaurant.
Located within the heart of the regeneration area, the Community Hub will host key community facilities including a pre-school nursery, health centre, pharmacy and community centre.
The combined location of these facilities promotes access to both health and wellbeing services and collaboration between service providers.
To allow easy access to these facilities, elderly care accommodation has been located in close proximity to the Community Hub.
