Bath City FC wants to hear from the local community on plans to redevelop part of the Club’s stadium
Local people are being invited to drop-in sessions at Bath City FC next month to discuss the redevelopment of Twerton Park.
The Club announced last year that it is working with Greenacre Capital to redevelop part of its site to provide new sports facilities and a community hub.
The scheme could also include the regeneration of the parade of shops on the High Street in Twerton, as well as reduced income housing and an element of Purpose Built Student Accommodation.
As part of ongoing engagement, people living in Twerton are being invited to attend drop-in consultation sessions at the football club where they will be able to share their ideas on what the scheme, particularly the community hub, could include.
Nick Blofeld, Chair of Bath City Football Club, said “The consultation drop-in sessions next month will again help inform the next stage of this exciting project to redevelop part of Twerton Park, which we believe will secure the future of Bath City FC and deliver real benefits for the surrounding community.
“We are still in the early stages and we are keen to have as much input as possible from the Twerton community and those who live in the area.
“We ran a successful workshop last year where stakeholders and residents shared their thoughts and ideas on what the new development could include.
“The feedback gathered at that event has proved invaluable to the project team but now we want to give more people the opportunity to have their say, particularly concerning the community elements.
“We hope as many people as possible will come along next month and talk with members of the project team about their ideas for the community hub.”
Bath City FC will bring detailed plans and designs on the redevelopment project to the public later in the year.
The drop-in sessions are being held in the J.Reynolds (Western) Limited Lounge at Twerton Park, High Street, Bath, BA2 1DB, on Wednesday 11th April between 12pm and 7pm, and in Charlie’s Bar at Twerton Park on Saturday 14th April between 12pm and 3pm (before kick-off of the home game with Hungerford Town).
If disabled access is required please call 01225 423087 to make arrangements.
All of the consultation information will also be available via www.bathcityfc.com/twerton-park-redevelopment/.
