Accrington Stanley Community Trust are delighted to reveal the plans for a £750k extension to the building at Stanley Sports Hub.
The new designs have now been completed and will go in for planning permission with Hyndburn Borough Council.
The plans include an extended cafeteria area with views onto the 3G pitch. A large indoor activity space that can host 80 people. 3 additional classroom areas and multiple training and meeting rooms to cater for education, employability, health & wellbeing and local community groups. An outdoor seating area and a balcony will be created to provide fantastic elevated views onto the 3G pitch.
Martin Fearon, CEO of Accrington Stanley Community Trust said: ‘‘the Stanley Sports Hub has been a roaring success, and after just 18 months of being open, we require additional space to meet the needs of our local community. Over 2000 people are using the facility each week, and the extension will allow us to educate more people through our college and degree qualifications, deliver employability and traineeships for people who are unemployed and offer local community groups a great venue to deliver their own projects.’’
If plans are approved, building works will start mid-way through next year with a completion date of late 2022.
Further updates will be announced in due course.
