Latest Update

In April 2018, it was agreed by Council that its Medical Tuition Service (MTS) would relocate to Parkfield to sit alongside the youth service and other community services based at the site. This co-location would provide an opportunity to bring in other funding sources to help maintain and run the building effectively and safeguard its sustainability.

The MTS would complement what is currently on offer from the site having majority use of the building during the school day, with the Youth Service and community groups continuing to use the site during the evenings, weekends and school holidays. The front of the site would continue to remain open and accessible to the public at all times.

As outlined in the Information Sharing Event last September, this proposal does not require any additional building, however, minor alterations are required to the internal layout of the MyPlace and a small amount of external works including some modest fencing and landscaping. Planning approval for the scheme was granted in January and a contractor has now been appointed to undertake the works. The works will be starting shortly and are expected to be completed by the end of the summer.

During this period, for safety reasons, the Youth Service will be temporarily moving out and the building will have restricted access. To minimise any service disruption it has been agreed that the works will be phased and the building handed over as follows:

11th March Contractor Starts - Restricted access to rear of MyPlace
28th May Phase 1 Complete - Handover of Sports Hall & Toilet Facilities
Mid JulyCompletion of Project
1st September   Official Opening of MTS
 

Please note that the following facilities will remain open and unaffected throughout the duration of the building works:

  • Climbing Wall
  • BMX Track
  • Skate Park
  • Pedestrian access through the site from Colin Road car park to Lower Polsham Road
