Stapleford: New images revealed for £6.4m community pavilion

The building will be a state-of-the-art, accessible, energy-efficient, multi-use building with recreation and sports grounds that will replace some of the town’s out-of-date community facilities. There will be extra car parking facilities and good improvements to the park.

Due to open in 2025, it will bring local community groups together under one roof as a central hub for people of all ages to meet, learn, play and keep fit.

  • Function rooms
  • Multi-use events and learning spaces
  • Dedicated young people’s facility
  • Community centre space
  • Enhanced and increased onsite car parking spaces and cycle storage

This project is one of six regeneration projects funded through the £21.1m Stapleford Towns Fund.

Residents can drop in between 2:30 pm and 6:30 pm at the Hickings Lane Recreation Ground Sports Pavilion on Thursday 25th May,  where people can see the plans and architect’s visualisations, ask questions and input into the project, ahead of the plans being considered by the local planning committee on Wednesday 7 June 2023.

Ian Jowett, Chair of the Stapleford Towns Fund, said:

“We heard very clearly how much local people wanted better facilities that enable them to come together to enjoy activities and events in appropriate surroundings. This £6.4m state-of-the-art community pavilion and young people’s centre will really deliver this for the whole community, putting Stapleford on the map.
