State-of-the-art £6.4m Community and Young People’s Centre is on the horizon for Stapleford

06/02/23 Exciting plans for a brand-new £6.4m Community and Young People’s Centre on the Hickings Lane Recreation Ground in Stapleford have been submitted for approval.

Due to open in 2025, the Centre will be a state-of-the-art, accessible, energy-efficient multi-use building. It will bring local community groups together under one roof as a central hub for people of all ages to meet, learn, improve health, and keep fit. Enhanced and increased onsite car parking spaces and cycle storage are included in the plans.

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

A public consultation event will be held in Spring for people to speak to the team and input into the project.

Paul Sweeney, Vice-Chair of the Stapleford Towns Fund, said:

“People told us they wanted a place to be able to meet for activities and events, and better facilities that help them to live healthier and more active lives. The new Centre will really deliver this, and become the heart of our community, bringing people together in a building that will stand the test of time for generations to come.”
