Following a number of public consultations, a design has been created for a new Pavilion to replace the existing building at the Melton Road Recreation Ground. The current building is no longer fit for purpose and is over 70 years old. The new building will be in the same location as the current Pavilion and have the same footprint.

The new design includes a public toilet (which will be open at set hours, not just when the Pavilion is in use), ability for a pop-up cafĂ© to operate, shelter for spectators, a flexible community space and storage. All these facilities were supported by responses to the consultation process. The construction will be brick, weatherboarding – using the low maintenance, fibre cement cladding HardiePlank – and a pantile roof.

This revised internal layout sketch was brought to Full Council on 16th December and is the design being considered.
