Building Typology : Non-Residential

Project Overview :

Rodborough Parish Council has submitted an application to Stroud District Council for a redevelopment of the existing community hall with a new first floor element. The plans would see Rodborough community hall modernised with additional solar panels and a larger space improving facilities for members of the public. Proposals also include a new toilets and changing area, cycle parking and the creation of a larger hall and two other meeting rooms. The plans also include a separate downstairs area for the parish council with a welcome entrance point.

At the moment it comprises a main hall, a kitchen, a small office, some toilet facilities, two sets of large communal showers and changing facilities for home and away teams, and a small shower and changing room for the referee. Rodborough Parish Council declared a carbon emergency in 2019, and the renovation would help reduce the community centre’s energy use.
