GSH Architects were appointed by the applicant to design a building to accommodate a teaching and social facility to support the existing facilities which currently occupy the site.

The pitch is used continuously throughout the year, being the home of 3no football clubs during the regular football season, together with additional training groups and representative sides utilising the facilities on a daily basis.

The Gloucestershire Football Association as part of its remit to the local community provide coaching, refereeing, and training courses, many of which are ‘classroom based’. The proposed building will allow this to occur whilst having an all weather external facility adjacent to allow practical activities.

The brief is to provide a multifunctional adaptable building to house the teaching and coaching elements but also offering a facility for spectators, players, on match/training days serving of the needs of the local community and Gloucestershire in the wider context.

Planning permission was granted for the scheme and works are expected to progress shortly.
