Planning Application Submitted for New Pavilion

Tuesday, March 27th, 2018

We submitted a full planning application last week to Aylesbury Vale District Council for a new sports and community pavilion in Haddenham, Buckinghamshire. The village is currently a hive of activity, as construction is underway on a couple of residential developments to deliver in the region of 500 new dwellings over the next few years.

Section 106 money from the developers is helping to finance a number of community infrastructure projects, which includes the provision of new sports and community facilities. Haddenham Parish Council appointed us to design and project manage the construction of a pavilion building next to new football pitches.

Our design for the building has taken into account the proximity of new houses, in keeping a low eaves height to the front to reduce the massing of the building. The part green sedum / part standing seam zinc roof has PV panels incorporated into the design. There’s a central glazed lobby space which splits the wings of the building into social and sports. Two changing rooms with showers are included, together with a large function space for indoor sports and activities.

 

 

 

The principle of the pavilion development was established at outline planning stage, but we are hopeful that full planning permission will be granted shortly by the Local Authority so that construction can begin this summer.
