Slades Pavilion Update

The final specification for the remaining building works has been completed and building regulation approval is being sought. We are working towards all works being completed by the end of 2018.

The new floodlit 3G full sized football pitch that will be built just on the Winton and Glenmoor Academy site has now received planning permission. We expect construction of the pitch to start next spring and the pitch opening for both school and community use in September 2019.

Thanks to the skateboarders and cyclists who helped with the photo shoot recently which we hope will provide some images to use in the new building.

Although it may seem that little has happened on site for a while there has been a great deal going on in the background. Like you, we are keen to get the building and the park busy but it will be a public space and so we have to be careful to ensure it meets all the compliance requirements that brings.

Internal fit-out: A large part of the interior of the Pavilion will be an open space accessible to all users of Slades Park, this needs some new flooring and lighting, plus three public toilets and a baby change area which require interior fittings and plumbing. The office and meeting rooms have to be reconfigured, the kitchen assembled, and all internal furnishings procured.

Exterior cladding and shutters: We are treating the cladding that will return the building to its original architect designed splendour and so the external appearance you now see is not what it will look like when complete.

Landscaping: Work to ensure the facility is fully accessible and also sympathetically sits in the Park surroundings is planned, including making sure access to and from the playground is appropriate.We also plan to remove the low walls and hedges from near the new pavilion and around the changing block B, this work should take place soon.
